Glenallachie is in the heart of Speyside, near Aberlour. A dam that looks like a village pond and a small waterfall soften the exterior of what is otherwise a functional modern distillery. It was built in 1967 primarily to contribute malt to the Mackinlay blends, at that time owned by Scottish and Newcastle Breweries. In 1985 the distillery and the Mackinlay business was acquired by Invergordon. The distillery was temporarily closed in the late 1980s but acquired and reopened by Campbell at the end of the decade. It is pronounced "Glen-alec-y".
