Ambition is at the heart of the Glen Grant distillery, a trait that continues to this day. It was back in 1840 that brothers John and James Grant took up a license with the aim to produce the world's greatest single malt whisky. Having lived 'adventurous' lives, the brothers saw their legacy live on with James Grant II, otherwise known as The Major. Now considered one of the most popular malts available, The Major's Reserve is a brilliant introduction to the world of single malts. Beautifully restrained and elegant, yet balanced with a underlying power and persistence of flavour. Speyside truly comes alive in the malts of Glen Grant.
Glen Grant is as a Speyside distillery with real heritage-producing one of the first single malts to be bottled as such, thanks to a decades-long symbiotic relationship with local whisky bottler Gordon & MacPhail, who have been bottling Glen Grant since at least the 1930s.
This relationship continues to this day, with the Elgin-based independent bottler releasing a seemingly endless supply of malts that continue to confirm that Glen Grant is one of only a handful of Speyside distilleries (the others including Macallan, Mortlach and Glenfarclas) producing a spirit that is capable of withstanding up to and over half a century of ageing in sherry casks.
Glen Grant was also the first distillery to bottle their own malt themselves, the first to install electric lighting (in 1861) and was the only Scottish distillery named after its owners, the Grant family.
