The Family Scotch.
 
Can you imagine having thousands of barrels of quietly aging sherry-mature Scotch to your name? Well, the Grant Family can ...and does! Glenfarclas is one of the few independent family-owned distilleries left in Scotland. It's located in the heart of Speyside. The Grant Family bought it for a pretty penny in 1865. They are committed to the vision of creating the best Single Highlander Scotch and we believe they're doing a splendid job so far!
 
The Whisky is stored in traditional dunnage warehouses – a change of purpose extraordinaire, right?! – that date from the late 1800s. The thick stone walls and earth floors are perfect for aging Scotch and give the distillery a distinctive, traditional feel.
 
Glenfarclas is all about mastering raw power and they do it with aplomb. Their Big Stills – the biggest in Speyside – are heated up with direct fire instead of indirectly with steam. This is instrumental in creating the gripping duality of Glenfarclas Whisky: it is at once weighty and light, deep but crisp, and even though it's almost exclusively aged in first-fill ex-sherry barrels, it never becomes syrupy, unpleasantly woody or overbearingly fruity. Uncle Flaviar once said that every dictionary should include a picture of Glenfarclas when you look up the definition of the word balance. 
 
The Glenfarclas 17 Year Old Whisky is bottled at 43% ABV and is an amazing example of the distillery's signature flavor profile and complex character. Maybe add a drop of water, but definitely share it with friends for that extra ooomph!
