Glendronach Revival 15 Year Old - Front Label

Back in 2015, it was announced that The Glendronach Revival 15 Year Old would be discontinued for approximately three years. Glendronach cited a lack of older stocks as reason for the discontinuation, but promised that the whisky would return at some point in 2018.

Staying true to their word, it appears that Glendronach Revival is on track to relaunch in late 2018. Labels for The Glendronach Revival 15 Year Old were recently approved by the TTB, and a reliable source has confirmed that it will be available in stores before the end of the year.

The Glendronach distillery was mothballed (closed) from 1996 until 2001. Upon reopening, the distillery switched from direct coal fired stills to steam heated stills. All whisky in The Glendronach Revival 15 Year Old prior to discontinuation had been direct coal fired distillate matured exclusively in Oloroso Sherry casks. The new release will contain steam heated distillate matured in a combination of PX and Oloroso Sherry casks. Will the profile of the new distillate be similar to that of the old stock? We’ll have to wait until later this year to find out.

    Waited three long, long years for this, with no guarantee that it would ever happen. If Glendronach 15 is anything like it used to be, and at an affordable price, I’m going to fill every cupboard in my house with it. I’m not getting caught out, without any Revival again!

      It’s been a long time coming! We’ve set aside old Revival to compare side by side with the new stuff and will share our impressions as soon as we can get our hands on it.

      yeah it’s true and about 4 times as expensive in my country 😉 sorry to say not worth it at that price

    I cant wait for this. By the time I had finished my ogininal 15y Revival its value had doubled and I couldn’t afford a second!

    Do you know where the best place to purchase it from will be this time around? Will it be direct from the distillery?

      The distillery will probably be your best bet if you’d like to obtain a bottle immediately upon release. If you’re unable to make it to the distillery, it’ll also be available in stores by the end of the year.
