In Gaelic, Glendronach means “valley of the blackberries” and the distillery rests near Huntly in the Valley of Forgue in Speyside. Glendronach has been producing whisky since 1826. The whisky making methods used at Glendronach are still very traditional as the barley is still turned by hand on the malting floor.
Everything about the Glendronach distillery is about tradition, from the original buildings, the cobbled courtyard and friendly staff. Glendronach tastes a lot like sherry as they only ever use specially selected Spanish sherry casks. The distillery has a great visitor centre and you can even stay overnight in accommodation.
