Torabhaig Distillery, the first whisky distillery to be built on the Isle of Skye in 190 years and the second legal distillery ever to operate on the island, will release the second expression from its Legacy Series of Single Malt Scotch Whiskies in August 2021.

Following the sold-out success of the first ever expression from Torabhaig Distillery in February this year, Legacy Series 2017, the second expression of Torabhaig single malt will be Allt Gleann - The Legacy Series. Named after the burn (stream) that flows down the side of the distillery in Teangue on the Isle of Skye, this eagerly awaited release will be bottled in small batches at 46%, and drawn from no more than 30 casks.

Allt Gleann will be the second of four expressions to be released under the Torabhaig Legacy Series, each capturing a stage on the journey from inception and youth through to coming of age and full maturity. For those who missed out on the first expression, The Legacy Series - Allt Gleann will be released in larger quantities, in four separate batches throughout 2021 and 2022. It will be more readily available through specialist whisky retailers globally, as well as in the visitor centre shop at The Distillery at Torabhaig on the Isle of Skye.
