GlenDronach Recherché 1968 44 Year Old

11th July 2013
Liquid history, as the oldest GlenDronach whisky in existence is released.

GlenDronach Distillery, which was acquired by The BenRiach Distillery Company in 2008, has announced the release GlenDronach Recherché”, a 44 year old Highland single malt, which was distilled and filled to cask on September 24th, 1968.

The ’68 stock represents the oldest whisky in GlenDronach’s vast warehouses, and GlenDronach 1968 cask no. 005, an Oloroso sherry butt, was hand-picked to be bottled as GlenDronach Recherché. The name "Recherché" has been chosen because it means "carefully sought-out".

GlenDronach tell me that this expression is sublime; a full-bodied, richly-sherried single malt bottled at a cask strength of 48.6% ABV, with all the traditional characteristics you would expect of a GlenDronach...and indeed one of which enigmatic founder James "Cobbie" Allardice would heartily approve!

This is a limited release of just 632 bottles, which will be available worldwide. GlenDronach “Recherché” will retail in the UK at £2749.99.
