GlenDronach, the sleeping giant, has awoken and is once again an independent distillery. Independent ownership gives them the freedom to rekindle the reputation of GlenDronach as the distiller of richly sherried single malt whiskies of inimitable and individual character. It’s a reputation that has travelled worldwide – to those in the know, it’s a well kept secret. The team at GlenDronach have set out on a journey to bring GlenDronach back to life. In April 2009 the famous 12, 15 and 18 year old were re-launched, creating the GlenDronach Core Range. Since then, Glendronach has developed a portfolio with some interesting wood finishes, excellent single cask bottlings and fantastic additions to the core range.
