Country of Origin: Scotland
Glen Grant Single Malt Whiskies – The town of Rothes in the Speyside region of Scotland is home to the distillery of Glen Grant. The operation produces and moves vast quantities of spirit under their own single malt label and independent bottlings, as well as being a key contributor to Chivas Regal blends.
Glen Grant’s distillery license was issued in 1840 to brothers John and James Grant. After the death of the brothers, a Major James Grant Jr., took control of the distillery and expanded its operations.
The shape and size of Glen Grant’s eight stills play a key role in shaping the flavour profile of its whiskies. The four 15,100 liter wash stills and four 9,600 liter spirit stills feature pronounced wide bases combined with tall, narrow necks. Additionally, purifiers are utilized in both distillations. These features combine to yield a whisky that is known for its light and clean nature when compared to more robust malts.
