We have faith in WM Cadenhead.


WM Cadenhead was founded in 1842 and is arguably Scotland's oldest independent bottler. Today, the company operates out of Campbeltown — the one time Whisky capital of the world — and owns stores in several major European cities. When WM Cadenhead decide to champion a certain dram it really means something in the Whisky world. For this bottling, it is Glen Grant — they use the old name "Glen Grant - Glenlivet" since when the Whisky was distilled the Glen Grant was still inseparably tied to Glenlivet.

Glen Grant distillery was founded by brothers John and James Grant. They became “legal” in 1840. A bit of trivia: Glen Grant was the first distillery with electricity. James Jr., who took over after his father, was a man of ideas and innovation. One of those was incorporating taller, narrow stills and purifiers to improve the quality of the Whisky. The stills gave a lighter, grainy character to their Single Malt and it helped define a Speyside dram.

WM Cadenhead know their Whisky and they haven't missed the mark with this pick either. Noted Whisky professionals speak nothing but praise. The dram is lacking in certain aspects, but at the final judgement is unanimous — the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Whiskyfun proclaimed it as grand and grand it truly is. If you manage to get your hand on one of the rare bottles we suggest you do so — your taste buds will appreciate it.

The light style of Glen Grant is a result of purifiers that The Major installed. The tall stills and the purifier also resulted in the light color.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
James 'The Major' Grant was a great innovator. He was the first man in Highlands to own a car. He made Glen Grant the first distillery with electricity.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
