About the distillery
Glendronach Distillery, region Highland, located near Forgue was founded in 1826 by James Allardes. Glendronach was historically was the 2nd distillery to officially apply for a licence under the 1823 Excise Act, unfortunately it was relatively short lived as Allardes was forced to declare bankruptcy after a fire broke out destroying most of the distillery in 1837. In 1852 Walter Scott took ownership and re-built the distillery and sold it on in 1960 to Teachers & Sons Ltd who resumed production but with gradual decline in sales during the 90's the distillery was mothballed in 1996 and re-opened in 2002 under the ownership of Allied Distillers Ltd. In 2006 Chivas Brothers ltd took ownership who are now part of Pernod Ricard group. In 2008 it was sold on and again in 2016 when Brown-Forman purchased the distillery and remains the current owner.
