In 1826 the exuberant and extroverted James Allardice, along with a consortium of local farmers, founded the distillery and began producing his "Guid GlenDronach" single malt. Unfortunately Allardice's marketing strategy of offering free drams to Edinburgh's "ladies of night", coupled with a fire at the distillery in 1837, led to him declaring bankruptcy.
Thankfully however, the story doesn't end there...
The distillery was rebuilt by Walter Scott in 1852, and although it has changed hands several times over the years (and was even mothballed between 1996 and 2000), it continues today; a firm favourite of Sherry Heads everywhere.
Released to coincide with the film "Kingsman: The Golden Circle" hitting cinemas, this stunningly packaged sherry monster has been created using a combination of Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez casks that were filled in 1991. That particular vintage was specifically selected by Director Matthew Vaughn, as it is also the year that Kingsman protagonist "Eggsy" was born.

It hasn't all been smooth sailing for the creator of the Cutty Sark brand though. They were the supplier of wine to the Titanic, and also played a part in smuggling alcohol into the States during prohibition.
