Glentauchers

Best known for producing whisky used in blended Scotch, Glentauchers is a single malt distillery located near the town of Keith in Speyside. Official single malt releases from Glentauchers are relatively rare.

History

Glentauchers Distillery was founded in 1897 by James Buchanan and W.P. Lowrie. The distillery was established during a period of significant growth in the Scotch whisky industry. Over the years, Glentauchers has changed hands multiple times. It became part of the DCL (Distillers Company Limited), the predecessor to Diageo. In the 1980s, Glentauchers was acquired by Allied Domecq, and it eventually became part of the Pernod Ricard portfolio.

Production Style & Limited Releases

Glentauchers whiskies are known for their light and floral character. The distillery uses copper pot stills for distillation and the spirit is typically matured in a combination of American oak and sherry casks. Official releases have included age-statement whiskies and, while rare, offer enthusiasts an opportunity to experience the distillery's character in a standalone form.

Visitor Centre

Unfortunately, Glentauchers Distillery does not have a dedicated visitor centre that is open to the public.
