”The spirit of independence”

Distilled and bottle by J & G Grant.  No relation to the Grants of Glenfiddich.

Glenfarclas is under the control of the 6th generation of Grants, and is one of the few distilleries that are truly independent. Glenfarclas means ‘valley of the green grass’. The distillery was originally purchased with a farm and is fair to say was more of a hobby to start with, the farming being the serious business.  The distillery was rebuilt in the late 1800s and from then on Whisky was the serious business.  The family still breed pedigree Aberdeen Angus cattle.  The still house features 6 stills which are the largest on Speyside.  The whisky is distilled twice, and then put into sherry casks for maturation.  There are 52,000 casks maturing in the ‘dunnage’ houses at Glenfarclas.  The tasting room in the distillery is wooden panelling from the RMS Empress of Australia built in 1913.

This is a robust whisky but has the finesse of the classic Speyside malts.  There are sweet malty tones with hints of vanilla and spice to the nose.  On tasting these come out with a light smokiness, which then has long lingering finish. (Wonderful aperitif)

The Glenlivet

12 yr old   40% abv

Smooth and flowery with peach and vanilla. Delicately balanced with a long and warming finish.

From Speyside’s ‘longest glen’ The Glenlivet, 40% abv. The start of it all, the first licensed distillery to legally produce whisky. The water is still drawn from Josie’s well as it was over 200 years ago.

This legendry malt has a nose of summer fruits and pineapple, on the palate it has notes of peaches, pears and vanilla and finishes with almonds and hazelnuts. It is lively to start but doesn’t have a long finish, refreshing, good daytime and aperitif. (Aperitif)
