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.
Scottish violinist Scott Skinner composed music for the violin, as a tribute to the distillery. The Strathspey (a lively Scottish dance) titled “Glen Grant” was composed on the 24 of April, 1909.
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.
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).
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.
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.
