Glen Grant has revealed the Glasshouse Collection, a selection of the oldest single malt whiskies in the distillery’s permanent range. The new collection will comprise of Glen Grant 21, 25, and 30 Years Old single malts.


The collection is named for the glasshouse belonging to James ‘The Major’ Grant, who inherited the distillery in 1872. The Major was a traveller and collector of plants, which he brought back to Scotland to grow in his glasshouse.


The brand has used the glasshouse as a lens through which to see the three whiskies, which is says represent “a journey through the cycle of daylight”. The 21 Years Old is first light, with its “fresh and vibrant character”. The 25 Years Old marks golden hour, capturing “the essence of lingering warmth and golden hues”. Finally, the 30 Years Old is twilight, and is “rare and evocative”.


All three expressions have been matured in American oak bourbon barrels and oloroso sherry casks. They are made with the taller-necked copper stills that are a signature of the distillery.

The Glasshouse Collection will be the final releases from the Glen Grant with master distiller Dennis Malcolm at the helm. Malcolm recently announced his retirement, after more than six decades in the whisky industry.


Malcolm’s successor as master distiller, Greig Stables, shared: “Working alongside Dennis for nearly two decades has been an incredible journey and I’m deeply grateful for his insight and guidance. As I become master distiller, I carry with me the lessons learned and the guiding vision imparted on this journey.


“I’m honoured to lead the Glen Grant into this new chapter and am excited and enthused for what is to come. Now as we introduce these rare and aged whiskies, I am thrilled we can showcase how exceptionally the Glen Grant spirit ages over time, maintaining its character and integrity.”


In honour of the new releases, Glen Grant has partnered with artist Lachlan Turczan, whose new installation is titled A Day in the Glasshouse, part of his Optical Resonance immersive series. The installation uses light and water to create reflections, which represent each whisky’s character and the time of day with which it is associated in the Glasshouse Collection.


The Glen Grant 21 Years Old (46% ABV) is available now across the UK at RRP £250. The 25 Years Old (46% ABV) will be exclusively available online at Berry Bros & Rudd from 14 June–11 July 2024, after which date it will be available from further retailers, at RRP £734. The 30 Years Old (48% ABV) will be released later in 2024.
