Glendronach 15 Year Old Sherry Casks

Glendronach was built in 1826 by James Allardice, and rebuilt following a fire in 1852 by an individual named Walter Scott (although not the one you might be thinking of). It eventually passed into the hands of perhaps Scotland's greatest distilling dynasty, the Grant's of Glenfiddich. Charles, the youngest son of William Grant procured the then-silent distillery from the government in 1920, and it remained in the family until they sold it to Wm. Teacher 40 years later. The Grant's and Teacher's were early champions of the single malt category, and distillery bottlings of Glendronach were produced for most of the 20th century until it was mothballed by Allied Distillers in 1996. The distillery was revived in 2002, and has since become one of the strongest single malt brands in the world. 

Similar to the 100% Sherry Casks 12 year old that it replaced in 1991, this 15 year old led the sales volume for Glendronach in the 1990s before its closure. When Billy Walker re-opened the distillery he paid homage to this, developing a new sherry casked 15 year old called Revival, which was an equally revered expression.
