Distillery Notes

Glenfarclas produce outstanding malts and in an unusually wide variety of ages. Experienced tasters usually place them in the top three or four from this most distinguished district. The Glenfarclas malts are at the heftier end of the Speyside line-up, though they are not the very heaviest. The Glenfarclas malts are the strong, silent type: tall, dark and handsome, notably firm bodied, but willing to reveal a sweet side to their nature. They are excellent company at any time and especially after dinner. Glenfarclas means “valley of the green grass”. The distillery is about a mile from the Spey, beyond which the heather-covered hills rise toward Ben Rinnes from which the distillery’s water flows.

The distillery is large and successful, a wholly private, family-owned company - J and G Grant. They are not connected (except perhaps distantly) to any of the other whisky-making Grants and regard theirs as the most truly independent of all Scottish distilleries. The distillery was founded in 1836 and has been in the family since 1865. Its stillhouse is modern and its stills the biggest in Speyside.
