Year Founded

Barrel Head


Located in the heart of the Garioch region, Glendronach Distillery boasts a rich history dating back to its founding in 1826 by a group of local farmers led by James Allardice. Despite facing a catastrophic fire in 1837 and Allardice's bankruptcy in 1842, the distillery's reputation continued to grow under various owners. In 1852, Walter Scott rebuilt Glendronach, setting the course for its enduring legacy. A significant turning point came in 1920 when Captain Charles Grant, the son of Glenfiddich's founder, acquired the distillery, fostering its success for four decades before it joined the Wm Teacher & Sons portfolio. During this period, the distillery expanded, adding two more stills in 1967.

In 1976, Glendronach became part of Allied Distillers, leading to the release of innovative 12-year-old expressions aged in both ex-Bourbon and ex-Sherry casks in 1991. However, it was mothballed between 1996 and 2002. In 2008, The BenRiach Distilling Co. took ownership, marking the start of a new chapter for Glendronach.

Renowned for its Sherry-matured whiskies, Glendronach has gained global acclaim, particularly among Sherry cask enthusiasts. In 2016, Brown-Forman, the producer of Jack Daniel's Tennessee whiskey, acquired Glendronach as part of The BenRiach Distillery Company. Today, Glendronach remains true to its traditional methods, producing robust and Sherried single malts with a loyal following.
