About the distillery

Glendronach distillery is a Scottish whisky distillery located near Forgue, by Huntly, Aberdeenshire, in the Highland whisky district. In April 2016 Glendronach Distillery was purchased by the Brown-Forman Corporation. The deal included BenRiach and Glenglassaugh distilleries.

The distillery draws its water from the Dronac burn within the distillery grounds. It has its own floor maltings and two wash stills in addition to two spirit stills.

Other Information

Chales Brown was a well respected solicitor at Aberdeen's oldest standing law practice; Burnett & Reid.

During his role, Charles factored and provided legal services for many distilleries and estates, and was known to do business with a number of bottling/blending companies such as Gordon & MacPhail and Campbell, Hope & King.  Charles also did business with the Balnoon estate - this land neighbours the Glendronach distillery and is the water source for Glendronach to this day.

Charles sadly passed away in August 1981, leaving behind some 'one of a kind' bottlings of Macallan and Glendronach - these whiskies are believed to have been bottled from casks that were gifted to Charles for his services.

This particular bottle of Glendronach has been bottled at an unknown strength in the 1940/50s era. A fantastic piece of whisky history.

Please note the box shown in the lot photos will not be sent with the bottle - it is being retained by the seller.

Please ensure that you undertake close up viewing/inspection prior to placing any bid.  If you are not satisfied with the photos, or if you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please click "ask a question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report.  Lots will be sold as seen and described.  

 

Insurance against breakage or loss during transit is available at checkout at a cost of 3% of the hammer price.

 

Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against leakage in transit.
