Deep in the East Highland Hills, hidden in the fertile valley of Forgue, The GlenDronach Distillery has been quietly mastering the art of sherry cask maturation since 1826. As our legacy of marrying Highland spirit to Spanish sherry oak continues, the distillery has embarked on a new journey, releasing its first ever expression exclusively for Global Travel Retail.
The GlenDronach Forgue Aged 10 Years is matured in a combination of Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherry casks, celebrating the rich heritage and terroir of the Forgue valley, where founder James Allardice built the distillery and named it ‘GlenDronach’, which means ‘Valley of the brambles’ in Scots Gaelic.
The GlenDronach Forgue Aged 10 Years is bottled at 43% ABV, and as is the case for all The GlenDronach expressions, is non-chill filtered and absorbs colour naturally over time from the Spanish oak in which it resides.
Master Blender, Rachel Barrie said:
“The GlenDronach Forgue Aged 10 Years is a richly sherried single malt with an unashamedly Highland character. Matured in fine Pedro Ximénez and Oloroso sherry casks, the result is a cornucopia of bramble fruit and oak, combined with notes of harvest-ripe barley, as found in Forgue’s rich and fertile landscape.
The GlenDronach is a distillery known across the globe for its authenticity, craftsmanship and sherry cask maturation expertise. It is an honour to carry on this tradition, through sharing our first ever travel retail exclusive release from the valley of Forgue with world travellers.”BACK TO ALL NEWS
