James Grant lead the Raid on Elgin in 1820, the last clan revolt of Scottish history. Two decades later, John and James Grant received a Distillery license from the Crown. With the sea and the port of Garmouth nearby, River Spey to the south, surrounded by barley farms, all the basic ingredients for brewing Malt were at hand. The brothers worked hard, Distillery Glen Grant flourished, the first in the Highlands to run electric light and to introduce the tall, slender sills and purifier that make the fresh Malty flavours and crystal amber hues which define Glen Grant Whisky to this day.
Rich golden barley hues. Bouquet of ripe orchard fruits. Creamy, fruity lingering hazelnut palate, a gentle, elegant Speyside Single Malt with hints of almond on the intense, fruity, seasoned Bourbon cask finish.
