Glen Grant is one of the best-known distilleries based in Speyside. Built in 1839 by James & John Grant, it was a huge company for its time. Over time, the size only increased when John's son, John "The Major" Grant was at the helm of this company. It also expanded a lot in the 20th century, making this distillery (along with its sister distiller Caperdonich) one of the largest in Speyside.


Already in the late 19th century, Glen Grant was marketed as a single malt whisky and that is also the reason why there are relatively many old Glen Grant single malt whiskies available. This whisky was available worldwide even then, and Glen Grant was particularly successful in Italy. As single malt whisky was not Glen Grant's core business, bottling was outsourced to Gordon & MacPhail in the mid-twentieth century. Because Gordon & MacPhail did this for several distilleries in Speyside, the series was also called Distillery Labels / Licensed Bottling.


This particular bottling was distilled in 1948 and presumably bottled in the 1980s. This we think since this whisky is bottled in a bottle with a capacity measure of 75cl. In 1991, Gordon & MacPhail switched from 75cl to 70cl bottles. So the contents of this bottle house a single malt whisky that has matured for 40 years in oak casks.

Glen Grant Distillery

Glen Grant Distillery is located in Rothes, in the heart of Scotland's Speyside region. Founded in 1840 by brothers John and James Grant, the distillery has a long and rich history. Known for its innovative approach, Glen Grant became one of the first distilleries to use electric lighting in 1872.

A unique feature of Glen Grant is the use of water from the nearby Caperdonich spring, which contributes to the purity of their products. Glen Grant whiskies are known for their elegant, fruity and floral aromas, with notes of apple, pear, vanilla and a subtle hint of spiciness.

The whiskies are mainly matured in ex-bourbon casks, which ensures a refined and balanced flavour. Glen Grant is recognised worldwide for its consistency and quality. The combination of a rich history, innovative techniques and high-quality whiskies makes Glen Grant a respected name in the world of Scotch whisky.
