Quick Overview

Glen Grant is one of the top five bestselling Scotch single malt distilleries worldwide. The Campari Group acquired Glen Grant whisky distillery in 2006 for the princely sum of €115m from Chivas Brothers, then under Pernod Ricard ownership. Accordingly, Glen Grant is likely to be made substantially larger. At present, the Glen Grant distillery houses six stills and runs at near full capacity, which totals 5.9million litres per annum. However, with the proposed addition of a power plant nearby and a further eight stills, by 2010 the capacity could be as much as twelve million litres.

“Nature plays a key role in establishing the true quality of a great Single Malt Whisky”. Water is fundamental: their incredibly natural spring water comes from the Scottish Highlands and is an essential ingredient in Glen Grant.

The malting process involves soaking the barley in tanks i.e. “steeps” to prepare it for the mashing process. After soaking for the necessary period of time, the barley is spread out on a floor up to a thickness of 20 cm and left to germinate. Malted barley for Glen Grant has specific characteristics, dry, crispy, crumbly, and aromatic. The next step is “mashing”, i.e. mixing the barley with water to rinse out any impurities and prepare it for distillation.

Unlike some heavier and more robust Single Malts, Glen Grant is crisp, clear, fresh and light. What really distinguishes it from other malts is the unique distillation process. As a first step they use incredibly tall stills, which help ensure only the lightest spirit becomes Glen Grant. Secondly they are the only distillery to use purifiers in both of their distillations. This ensure only purest vapour is allowed to pass from the still to the condenser, and therefore creates a fresh, and light whisky.

Father time plays a vital role in Whisky maturation. At Glen Grant they are passionate about the treatment of thier casks. They meticulously choose top class Bourbon and Sherry casks, ensuring they are only used a certain number of times. This slow ageing process in top quality oak casks  gives Glen Grant its unique colour and decidedly fresh and fruity flavour. All casks are individually hand-picked by Dennis Malcolm, one of 8 illustrious Glen Grant Distillery Managers since 1890
