Producer Information

Glen Grant distillery was the first of five to be built in the town of Rothes. It was built by John & James Grant, two brothers who had previously been involved in illicit distilling.
James Grant son, Major James Grant, travelled extensively in India and Africa. On his return to Rothes, the distillery gardens were planted with rare and exotic plants. The distillery has recently restored the Victorian garden and it is open to visitors. If you are ever fortunate enough to be invited to the bottom of the garden, you may be treated to a special dram from a safe, set into a wall.
The Glen Grant stills are a unique shape with an almost square section between the pot and the neck. This, together with purifiers on the lyne arms, contributes to Glen Grants light, gentle character.
Glen Grant is one of the worlds biggest-selling Malt Whiskies, with Italy being a significant market.
