The GlenAllachie Past, Present and Future series, which launched in May, pays tribute to Master Distiller Billy Walker’s 50-year-old career in the Scotch whisky industry. Each instalment in the trilogy has been carefully selected to reflect a key milestone in his career.

Since taking over The GlenAllachie Distillery in 2017, Billy Walker began producing peated spirit for around six weeks annually to diversify the distillery’s offering and unleash new opportunities for innovation and experimentation.

This final release in the trilogy, is the first whisky bottled by the distillery to have been created under Billy Walker and impacted by his production modifications.

Commenting on the launch, Billy Walker, said: “It’s beyond exciting to release our very own whisky distilled since we took over this hidden gem of a distillery in 2017. I eagerly await the reaction amongst whisky fans to this first glimpse at both our own distillate, and our peated work. The response will unquestionably influence where we take things next. The timing of the launch is apt as we celebrate our fifth anniversary of ownership next month. We are so very fortunate to be steering this great distillery into the future. I think the best is yet to come.”

Limited to 10,000 bottles, The GlenAllachie Billy Walker 50th Anniversary Future Edition, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £80.00.
