Grant’s famous blended Scotch finished in Oloroso Sherry casks for a bright, fruit-forward dram.
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.
Every fan of Scottish Spirits knows that there is a certain magic in Sherry casks. The folks at Grant’s know it too. So, they took their famous blend of Single Malts and grain Whiskies — all aged a minimum of eight years — assembled them, and let them finish in Oloroso Sherry casks to make Grant’s 8 Year Old Sherry Cask Finish. The combination brings extra fruit and a hint of rancio worth your attention.
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.
