Winning bid: £3800.00
Lot number: 090-7605

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.
