Glendronach Cask Values & Valuations

Glendronach casks are now very sought after as the distillery has positioned itself at the top of the market along with distilleries such as Macallan and Dalmore. As a result Glendronach casks are very much sought after by buyers from Asia. Consequently prices for Glendronach casks have escalated to the point where ‘ordinary’ drinkers are no longer able to afford even the most basic of malts from Glendronach (their 8 year old offering is seldom found for less than £40-50 at present).

We specialise in the brokerage of Glendronach casks and have buyers all over the world ready to put forward a no-obligation offer.

The most desirable Glendronach casks are fresh fill sherry oak casks, however, refill sherry casks are also in demand. Bourbon casks (quite common at Glendronach) do not command the same premium as sherry casks but can still sell well.

Macallan

“From my initial contact with Mark the whole experience of selling my cask of 1989 Macallan Whisky has been a breeze. Mark was very helpful, exceedingly dedicated and totally professional at all times.

It was an excellent service provided at a very reasonable cost. Mark obtained a fantastic six-figure sum for my cask which I am completely over the moon with.

I would not hesitate to recommend his services to others.”

Tim Johnson 

“Mark sold a cask of whisky which I had inherited and did not know what to do with. The offer I got through Mark was much higher than the distillery had offered me and the whole process was simple and best of all, profitable!

He explained all of the steps I needed to take in a straightforward manner and no question was too small for him to answer. Well recommended.”

“Mark sold a barrel of Springbank for me – he is very attentive, always responds quickly, and kept me informed throughout the process, and achieved a very pleasing sale price. S

Selling a barrel is quite slow and administratively fiddly, so having someone like Mark who knows the process is useful, not just to find a willing buyer but to nurse the transaction along as well..”

Neil Holden

“I approached Mark with some trepidation about the sale of a cask of whisky having no idea how to sell it. Mark is eminently knowledgeable about the resale process and before long had secured a very good offer.

I was very impressed with the way Mark communicated during the process, he kept me up to date with regular calls and dealt with all the legal aspects of the sale.

Well worth a five star rating and I would not hesitate to use Mark’s services again.”

The History of Glendronach Distillery

The Glendronach distillery is one of three Garioch distilleries and was established in 1826 when a group of local farmers formed a partnership under the leadership of James Allerdice. He was a charismatic leader who built up a strong reputation for the brand – in fact Glendronach whisky was already been sold in London shortly after the brand’s foundation, however in 1837 tragedy struck when fire decimated most of the distillery. More problems occurred a few years later in 1842 when James Allerdice went bankrupt.

Nevertheless, his efforts in promoting the brand put the Glendronach whisky in a strong position and Walter Scott saw its potential, coming forward to take over the distillery in 1852. He rebuilt to the condition that the Glendronach distillery is in today.

In 1920, Captain Charles Grant took over the brand. He was William Grant of Glenfiddich’s youngest son, and the distillery stayed in his family for four decades at which point it was sold on to Wm Teacher and Sons. It was at this point in 1967 that another pair of stills was added.

In 1976, the Glendronach distillery was taken over by Allied Distillers when they bought the Teacher’s estate. Two 12-year-old expressions were released in 1991, one of which was aged in an ex sherry cask and one of which was aged in ex-Bourbon casks. This was an innovation at that time, however no serious backing was forthcoming for the brand and this led to the distillery being mothballed for a few years between 1996 – 2002.

The Dalmore Distillery was taken over by Pernod Ricard who then solid on to the The BenRiach Distilling Company in 2008. Since that time, a brand-new visitor centre has been created and the public are now welcomed to take part in tastings and tours. There has also been a brand new single malt range released. Lovers of sherried malts all around the world are starting to appreciate the Glendronach brand and a considerable following has been built up in Taiwan.

The water used by the distillery comes from the Dronac burn which is located within the grounds of the distillery. It is one of only a handful of Scottish distilleries to have floor maltings of its own and it has 2 wash stills and 2 spirit stills. The building itself is protected, being recognised as a catgeory B listed building.
