The Glenallachie distillery was founded in 1967 by Mackinlay McPherson Ltd a subsidiary of Scottish & Newcastle Breweries Ltd. It was designed by the architect William Delmé Evans, who also built Tullibardine and Isle of Jura. The Glenallachie was built to supply malt whisky to go into the Mackinlay blend.

In 1985 Scottish & Newcastle Breweries Ltd sold the distillery together with the Isle of Jura distillery to Invergordon Distillers and two years later in 1987 the Glenallachie distillery was decommissioned.

In 1989 Pernod Ricard acquired Glenallachie through its Campbell Distillers Ltd subsidiary who already owned the nearby Aberlour distillery. They doubled the number of stills from 2 to 4 and restarted production.

Official bottlings of Glenallachie were rare, in 2006 a 16 year old cask strength matured in sherry casks was released, independent bottlings were quite rare also. Almost all of the whisky produced at Glenallachie went into blends such as Clan Campbell, Chivas Bothers 4th largest blend.

In 2017 Pernod Ricard sold the Speyside distillery to a three person consortium lead by the former BenRiach Distillery Company managing director Billy Walker and in July 2018 the distillery launched a core range of whiskies consisting of a Glenallachie 10 year old Cask Strength, 12, 18 and 25 year old.
