Billy Walker   

 

Most scotch drinkers know Billy Walker from his 2003 purchase of Benriach, and later GlenDronach and GlenGlasaugh distilleries. Anyone who tasted those malts under Billy’s direction knows he is an artist with whisky -- at any age, you know that whatever he’s putting in a bottle, it’s ready to drink. In 2016 he sold all three to Brown Forman (maker of Jack Daniels.) In 2017, Billy and two partners bought GlenAllachie.

The GlenAllchie Distillery was built in 1967 . Let’s just say, the first 50 years was just a practice run. Now it’s Scottish owned and making whisky for people that love whisky. In just a few years, this gentleman has done immense work: Since he reopened it in 2017 GlenAllchie has been honored as  Distillery of The Year, and the whiskies have been taking medals. When it comes to blending and bottling he works it so well. This is the first run, so we will not have a lot of product, It will be first-come first-served.
