After Master Distiller Billy Walker established that the finish period had been given its optimum impact, the Whisky was professionally mixed to form the Cuvée Wine Cask Finish.
The Languedoc casks are said to show "red fruit, sweet spices and garden herbs"; while the Recioto della Valpolicella, produced in Verona, contributes to "ripe cherries, coconut, licorice and raspberry coulis"; Where Prime Minister Cru classé "black berry, espresso and wild truffle" are added.
Billy Walker about the first Glenallachie launch in 2023:
“As a passionate wine lover, coming up with a Cuvée was nothing less than a dream project. I am lucky to have long -term relationships with premium wine producers throughout Europe, this has opened our doors to create a whisky with complex charm.
“As a blender in heart and soul, it was a very interesting challenge to identify wine styles that fit well together and to record distinctive qualities. It is sometimes said, "never mix grapes and grain," but I can say with certainty that this marriage is a match made in heaven."
