Glenfarclas Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky has been distilled on Speyside for six generations by one family – the Grants. The Glenfarclas Distillery was legally established in 1836, on the moors at Ballindalloch, in the heart of Speyside. In 1865, John Grant purchased the distillery, which is still owned and run by his descendants.
Highly respected by connoisseurs, the single malt whiskies of Glenfarclas are matured almost solely in sherry butts. You will not find bottlings of Glenfarclas in exotic wood finishes; this family distillery prizes its integrity and indepence.
Interestingly, Glenfarclas was one of the first distilleries to open a visitor centre in 1973. The visitor centre includes the 'Ship's Room', a tasting room with panelling from the RMS Empress of Australia – this ship was of historical importance for ferrying the last British troops home from Bombay, after they had symbolically passed through the Gateway of India, bringing an end to British imperial rule in India.Show more
