GlenDronach sells out in Belgium

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * News

Glendronach 18yoThree weeks ago, GlenDronach launched the new range of 12yo, 15yo and 18yo malts and already the first 3000-bottle consignment has sold out in Belgium, much to the surprise of the GlenDronach team.

GlenDronach’s Belgian importer The Nectar, represented by Mario Grooteklaes, explained: “GlenDronach has always been a well-known brand in Belgium, especially the “old” fifteen-year-old. That, and the good publicity given to the new fifteen and eighteen-year-olds by some Malt Maniacs, and on some forums, made it easy to introduce the new range to about one hundred specialised liquor stores over Belgium in just one week.”
