Glen Grant

Translation: Valley of the Grants

Region: Speyside


Nothing could go wrong.


The brothers John and James Grant, who founded Glen Grant in 1840, brought two extremely useful skills to run a distillery. Both were successful blackburners and smugglers - and James also a lawyer. Very convenient. And indeed, the new distillery was successful from the start. As early as 1897, "Glen Grant 2" was built on the other side of the street to meet the great demand. Glen Grant 2 later became "Caperdonich" and Glen Grant one of the first malt whiskeys to be marketed internationally.


A little history


Founded in 1840 by the brothers John and James Grant, Glen Gran was the first of the five distilleries in Rothes.
After the death of the brothers took over the son of James Grant in 1872, the distillery. In 1898 he replaced the original Floormaltings by Drummaltings and built on the other side of the street Caperdonich the then Glen Grant no. 2 was called.
The two distilleries were until the first closure of Glen Grant no. 2 1902 connected by a pipeline. The distillery was expanded in 1973 from four to six and in 1977 by the new owners Seagram on eight stills. From 2001 to the end of 2005, the distillery belonged to Pernod Ricard after the acquisition of Allied Domecq but the distillery had to be sold for competitive reasons. New owner is the Campari Group.


What do I actually have in the glass?


One should not be fooled: The rather young, bright bottlings, which some may know from the well-stocked supermarket, basically do not show the true face of Glen Grant. The more mature malts are often of dark gold, full and warm. A very soft, elegant Speyside representative.


3 reasons to love Glen Grant


4) Because it's no coincidence that Glen Grant is popular
5) Because the whiskey town of Rothes would not be Rothes without Glen Grant
6) Because Glen Grant is more versatile than many think.

The one drama for the lonely island


It is anything but typical, but simply an experience: the 22-year-old from the series "The Single Malts of Scotland" shows with smoke and a lot of power what Glen Grant can be.
