PRODUCER NOTE

In 1865, Glenfarclas distillery, nestled in the heart of Speyside, was purchased by a cattle breeder by the name of John Grant.  Today, the Glenfarclas spirit still lives strong and continues in family ownership under the direction of 5th and 6th generations, John and George Grant.

Glenfarclas means ‘Valley of the Green Grassland’ and the spring water, which ensures the verdant green grass, is essential to the distinct flavour of Glenfarclas Highland Single Malt Whisky. It bubbles up, crystal clear, from the underlying granite on the slopes of the Speyside mountain, Ben Rinnes, to supply the distillery below.

There, it is combined with the finest malted barley, twice distilled in traditional, direct fired, copper pot stills and only the lightest and best fractions of alcohol are collected, two thirds to be filled into the finest Spanish Sherry oak casks and one third into plain oak casks in which to lie maturing over many years.

Times may have changed, but it’s what has stayed the same that makes Glenfarclas unique: the six generations of Grant family pride and the revered quality of their famous Single Malt Whisky.

The Family Casks

The Glenfarclas Family Casks are a unique collection of some of the best single casks from the distillery’s warehouses. Launched in 2007, the collection was initially comprised of 43 single casks with one from every year from 1952 to 1994. Vintages currently range from 1954 into the 2000s, spanning 6 decades, with more released each year.

It is the distiller’s intention to continue to offer as wide a range of consecutive vintage dated single casks as possible. The Family Casks are bottled at cask strength and natural colour, allowing you to explore the subtle differences between casks and the history of family owned Glenfarclas.
