GlenAllachie 8yo og White Heather 15yo

To nye aftapninger fra The GlenAllachie Distillers Company, begge kommer til at indgå i deres Core serie.
Den ene er en 8 års GlenAllachie single malt og den anden er en 15 års White Heather blended whisky.

Billy Walker udtaler:
“From the outset, it has been my aim to release quality whiskies at fair and accessible price points. This can be a significant challenge when you also choose to deploy an extensive and costly wood management policy, however, I believe The GlenAllachie 8-year-old fits the bill without any compromises or corner-cutting.

“In terms of White Heather, this has been a real passion project for me. It takes me back to my first forays in the industry and allows me to select and blend whiskies from across Scotland in order to achieve the intended flavour profile. I hold a strong belief that interest in the Premium Blend category is growing, and we very much want to be at the forefront of it with White Heather.”
