The Glendronach distillery was established by James Allardice in 1826, but was unfortunately the distillery was burnt down in 1837. The licence and the burnt out distillery were sold to Walter Scott.

The distillery closed in 1916 and in 1920 was bought by William Grants son Charles Grant. Glendronach remained in the Grant family until 1960 when it was sold to William Teacher & Sons. In 1966, Teacher's increased the number of stills to four. Teacher's was acquired by Allied Breweries, now under the control of Allied Distillers Ltd.

The Glendronach distillery was mothballed in 1995, but resumed production again in 2002. The malt produced was used in Ballantine and Teachers blends. Glendronach was the last remaining coal-fired whisky distillery in Scotland, but switched to a more environmentally friendly fuel source in 2006 in order to comply with new European Union rules. This means that coal-fired stills will be a thing of the past in Scotland.

The distillery was bought in August 2008 by the BenRiach Distillery Company. The new owners of GlenDronach released a new core range in March 2009 which comprises of 12, 15 and 18-year-old malts. It also released a non-aged product, single cask bottlings and some rare vintage malts.
