The GlenDronach Master Vintage 1993 Aged 25 Years
In 1826, deep in the Forgue valley of the east Highland hills, our founder James Allardice built his distillery. He named it ‘GlenDronach’, Scots Gaelic for ‘valley of the brambles’.
So began our dedicated quest of nearly two centuries, to master a signature style which is elegant, rich and robust, maturing The GlenDronach in the finest sherry casks from Andalucia in Spain.
Sherry casks laid down in 1993 have received high praise, with malt aficionados naming these casks as some of the best ever released. The GlenDronach 1993 Master Vintage shows that such reverence is well-deserved. For this vintage, a small number of Pedro Ximיnez and Oloroso sherry casks were hand-selected to create a marriage of exceptional richness and complexity. It is a truly masterful expression of our robust Highland single malt.
After twenty-five years in the finest sherry wood, The Glendronach 1993 Master Vintage is an extraordinary limited edition Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Expect profound layers of depth and complexity, leading to an exceedingly long, voluptuous and memorable finish.
