GlenDronach 33 years 1978 - 2012 Single Cask #1068

The founding of The GlenDronach distillery took place in 1826 in the town of Forgue near Huntly in the Highlands, Scotland. With almost 200 years of experience, The GlenDronach distillery is one of the oldest in the Highlands and a truly traditional distillery that still mainly uses maturation in sherry casks.

Since 2007, The GlenDronach has presented a series under the name: Single Cask whiskies. Batch 6 was launched in July 2012.

True to their tradition, The GlenDronach primarily uses carefully selected sherry casks hand-crafted at renowned sherry bodegas from southern Spain (Jerez de la Frontera and Sanlúcar de Barrameda) 

Origin and bottling

Distilled on 29 December of the year 1978 and finally bottled in July 2012 after a maturation of over 33 years. This Single Cask Whisky is the perfect example of craftsmanship from this renowned Highlands distillery.

After very careful selection, cask 1068 was selected and finally bottled at cask strength without colouring and filtering. This has resulted in 318 bottles.

Cask type

This single cask whisky has spent over two decades on a Oloroso Sherry Puncheon. This cask has allowed this GlenDronach to gain unparalleled depth and enormous complexity.
