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.

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.

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.
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.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
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.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
