GlenAllachie launched in 2022 a trilogy Limited Edition Series of Single Malts to celebrate a remarkable 50 year spell in the Scotch Whisky industry of the world-leading whisky maker Billy Walker. Renowned for his role as Master Distiller at The GlenAllachie Distillers Company, Walker has spent the past five decades creating some of the world’s most coveted whiskies. The GlenAllachie trilogy includes: Past Edition, Present Edition and Future Edition.
The third and last release of the series, The GlenAllachie Present Edition 4 Year Old Peated Single Malt was launched in October 2022. The Future Edition is the first distillate that Billy has overseen from start to finish, and also the first release to have been impacted by the changes in production implemented by Billy Walker when he joined The GlenAllachie Distillery in 2017. The whisky was matured in former rye and bourbon barrels, as well as virgin oak casks and bottled in August 2022 at cask strength.
