Glen Grant 18 Year Brilliance in a bottle.

Glen Grant was founded by John and James Grant—brothers who had been making their living by means of illegal distillation and smuggling. But with a desire to settle down a bit, they finally took out a license in 1840 becoming “legal” for the first time. They met with a bit of success, but things really took off when the operation was taken over by James’ son—James Jr.—who brought enthusiasm, intelligence, and energy to the company … literally, since he wired the place and made Glen Grant the first distillery with electricity.   

Young James went by the nickname “The Major” and he was always embracing new ideas. He was the first man in the Highlands to own a car, for goodness sake. But one of those new ideas was incorporating taller, narrow stills and purifiers to improve the quality of the Whisky. Some say that this gave the Glen Grant single-malt its lighter, grainy character and influenced what it means to be a Speyside single-malt to this day.

This single malt is a dream. Aged for at least 18 years in the finest hand-selected oak casks, this Spirit is radiantly golden with seductively floral and oaky aromas. This whisky is complexly nuanced, with rich and vibrant flavors of malted caramel, vanilla, and dried fruit, followed by a long, sweet and spicy finish.

Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
