A once in a generation dram.

If you're a fan of Highland Single Malt Whiskies the word Glenfarclas is music to your ears. It means “valley of the green grass”… which perfectly describes its Banffshire location. It was founded in 1836 by Robert Hay, but was sold to the famous John Grant in 1865. The Grant family owns and operates the distillery to this day, making it one of the few remaining independent and family-owned distilleries in Scotland. Glenfarclas produces a range of classic Speyside-style Whiskies with a Sherry influence — all of them tasty and popular with the Whisky “in-crowd.”

Glenfarclas' stunning new 40 year old Whisky launched during the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival. It offers all of the sherried Glenfarclas character and exceptional maturity too, having been distilled in the 1960s.

When you are talking about a Whisky this rare, this well made, and this smack-dab-tasty, it’s hard to find the words. Seriously, if you can manage a bottle of this Highland gem, it is something special with the deep complexity and smoothness of a once in a generation dram.

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).
