BOYNSMILL AGED 16 YEARS

46% ABV

Deep in the east Highland hills, The GlenDronach Distillery has been quietly perfecting sherry wood maturation since 1826.

Our founder, James Allardice, built the distillery in the fertile landscape of the Forgue valley and named it ‘GlenDronach’, which means ‘valley of the brambles’ in Scots Gaelic. He chose the farmland of the Boynsmill estate upon which to build it, acquired with his father William in 1775, along with its mansion house, also named Boynsmill, built in 1771.

This expression, exclusively for the travel retail market, focuses on this landscape of the distillery, celebrating the earthy and bramble fruit terroir of the area.

It has been matured within fine Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry casks, from Andalucia in Spain, and port casks, from the Douro Valley in Portugal, as was imported and served in the houses of Scotland’s gentry at turn of the 19th century. The Spanish sherry casks bring out the rich house character of The GlenDronach while the port casks add the complex layers of bramble fruitiness that pay homage to the distillery’s home. In many ways it is the expression that our founder Allardice would have enjoyed in Glen House in years gone by.
