A perfect Scotch for fathers of all generations.

The saying goes that fathers build, sons expand, and grandsons destroy. But with this family it's different: every next progeny made the Spirit-making business stronger while keeping the ancient recipe intact.

The maker of this Spirit is one of the few remaining independent and family-owned distilleries in Scotland. It was started in 1836 by Robert Hay, and bought by John Grant a few decades later. Nowadays it's run by the 6th generation of the Grant family, making it truly independent, which is kind-of refreshing these days. Glenfarclas distillery owns six stills, which are the largest in all of Highland, and produce a typical Speyside-style Whisky, which is heavily Sherry influenced. They mature their malts in traditional dunnage warehouses, where they have stock back to 1952.

Glenfarclas 15 Year Old was matured exclusively in Sherry casks for 15 years. Bam! That's a lot of Sherry ageing. The infamous Jim Murray gave this superb dram 95 points in his Whisky Bible. It's a must for all fan-a-tics of Sherried Whiskies. And of Scotch. And of Whisky. And of Spirits!

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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).
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.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
In 1973, the first visitor center was opened in the Glenfarclas Distillery.
