The GlenDronach distillery in the Forgue valley in Aberdeenshire is named after the source of its water, the Dronach burn. It has a history of enterprising owners from the flamboyant James Allardice to the ambitious Walter Scott. Although times have moved on, the processes used to create the GlenDronach have remained largely unchanged. Today's malt is created using Oregon pine washbacks and the same shaped stills used in 1826.
