Where: Rothes, Speyside
About: Glen Grant’s story began in 1840, in Rothes, Speyside – Scotland’s premier region for whisky production; by brothers John and James Grant. Still produced in Rothes today, Glen Grant is currently one of the world’s best selling single malt Scotch whiskies and holds a range of prestigious industry awards, including being awarded Jim Murray’s Best Single Malt Scotch: 10 Years and Under for five years in a row in 2017 and the 18 year old Glen Grant crowned Scotch Whisky of the Year 2017.
The elegant and seductively smooth taste for which Glen Grant is renowned, is the result of the innovative tall slender stills and revolutionary purifiers that James ‘The Major’ Grant, son of founder James Grant, was one of the first to introduce over a century ago. Still used to this day, this lasting legacy continues to distinguish the brand.
Today, under the ownership of Campari the distillery bottles 100% of this famous single malt on site at the distillery. The distillery is open 7 days a week for guided tours and leisurely walk around the Victorian Garden.
