One of the most famous blended Scotch Whiskies in the world aged for eighteen years and finish in Port casks.

William Grant was a bookkeeper working for a distillery company. He and his seven sons and two daughters worked together to build their first distillery — Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown — with the first Spirit coming of the stills on Christmas Day, 1897. Then in 1898 disaster struck the Scotch business with the famous Pattison’s bankruptcy — then the largest Scotch Whisky blender. To Grant, this was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. He launched Grant’s Blended Scotch that same year. The company has been in family hands continuously since then, expanding to become one of the largest family owned and operated Spirits companies in the world.

Grant's 18 Year Old draws from their large portfolio of distilleries in Scotland. The master blender combines this collection os Single Malts and grain Whiskies with bits collected from other Scottish drams to craft the flavor profile. Those Spirits were aged a minimum of eighteen years before being married and finished in ex-Port casks, resulting in a Spirit of great depth and perfect balance.

Smartass Corner:
The current master blender at Grant’s is Brian Kinsman. His predecessor was David Stewart who held the post for forty-seven years making him the longest serving master distiller at a single company. A record that may last for quite a while.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
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).
