Light and apple fresh is the character which defines Glen Grant and this desire for delicacy has been present ever since ‘The Major’ took charge in the late 19th century.
Located in the idyllic Speyside town of Rothes, the Glen Grant distillery is one of the top five best selling distilleries in the world. Glen Grant has a bit of a dual personality, being both a highly acclaimed single malt distillery, and also a powerhouse for the production of single malt to be used in the Chivas blends.
The core range of the distillery’s official bottlings consists of a 10 year old, a 16 year old, and the Major’s Reserve, although they also have an extensive vintage collection. The independent bottler Gordon & McPhail has played a very significant role in Glen Grant’s history, having performed single malt bottlings since the 1930s.
Today, they continue to release bottlings from older casks. Glen Grant is (was prior to the sale of the distillery) also used as a major component in the Chivas blends, with over half of the distillery’s impressive production dedicated to this purpose.
