Glen Grant Single Malt Whisky

Despite the fact that Glen Grant is one of the numerous distilleries that lingers in the shadows of its competing top-notch distilleries such as Bowmore, the Glen Grant Distillery is notated in the top five of Scotland's most producing distilleries. Some of the distillery’s core range releases are the Glen Grant 10 Years Old and the Glen Grant 12 Years Old, which are mostly successful nightlife favorites among young individuals, while the Glen Grant 50 Years Old is truly a top-notch rare whisky that most collectors can only dream about.

 

The Glen Grant Distillery was founded in 1840 by James and John Grant, two brothers who learned the distiller’s craft during their employment in the Aberlour Distillery. Inspired by this experience, the Grant brothers requested for a license in the hopes of establishing their own distillery. The distillery’s name was easily chosen by adding “Glen” to their family name, by which the Glen Grant Distillery MORE ...

is the only distillery bearing the name of its founders. Glen Grant was the very first distillery to independently bottle its own single malts, and was presumably the first distillery that was connected to the electrical grid.

 

In the year 1953, Glen Grant merged with the mother company of The Glenlivet Distillery into “Glenlivet & Glen Grant Distilleries Ltd.”, which on its turn fused with Longmorn-Glenlivet Ltd. into the new founded company “The Glenlivet Distillers” in 1972. The following years, Glen Grant changed ownership to Seagram, Diageo and Pernod Ricard until it was ultimately purchased in 2006 by its current owner the Campari Group, by which the connection with The Glenlivet was finally broken.

 

Glen Grant Single Malt Whisky is highly valued in the southern countries of Europe, and serves an important cult status in Italy as the whisky market leader. Glen Grant is best characterized by its savors of tea, chocolate and sherry.
