A 30-Year Old Family Secret.

This 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.

Sometimes well aged Whisky can be tricky because it can lose its balance and character, but this is not the case with Glenfarclas 30 year old. The long maturation in Sherry casks has brought it velvety richness and it's lush with complex flavours and goodness, which makes for an amazing sipping experience you wouldn’t want to miss out on.

Great family run distillery. The 30 is fantastic as is the 25 YO.
