About The Glen Grant 18 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Glen Grant Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from crisp, Scottish barley, much of it still harvested from the same Morayshire fields that John and James Grant used nearly two centuries ago. Once the barley has been malted and mashed, it is fermented in washbacks made of Oregon Pine. While wooden washbacks are more expensive and difficult to maintain as compared to stainless steel washbacks, they absorb more heat generated during the fermentation process and thus, create a lighter and richer whisky.

Following fermentation, the wash is twice distilled, first through Glen Grant’s copper-pot wash still and then again through its spirit still. Each still is equipped with a purifier, which acts as a small condenser and causes a portion of the evaporating vapors to be pumped back into the pot and then re-distilled. This purification process — Glen Grant in the only distillery in Scotland to use purifiers in both distillations — results in whisky that has a signature fresh and malty flavor.

This is a single malt of unparalleled quality. Matured for at least 18 years in some of the highest quality hand-selected oak casks, yields a spirit with a radiant golden color, and compelling floral and oaky aromas. This whisky is deeply complex, with rich and vibrant elements, and intricately nuanced flavors of malted caramel, vanilla, and raisins followed by a long, sweet, and bold spicy finish.

About The Glen Grant

Situated along the banks of the River Spey, the Glen Grant Distillery was founded in 1840 by John and James Grant, who had previously been employed at the Aberlour Distillery. Glen Grant’s unique location — it enjoyed access to fresh water from the river, a steady supply of barley from the surrounding farmland and access to transportation from the nearby port of Garmouth — allowed it proposer quickly. By 1872, however, both John and James Grant had passed away, and James Grant Jr. — James’ son and John’s nephew — inherited the distillery. The younger Grant, known simply as “the Major,”quickly proved himself a worthy successor.

The Major was a legendary inventor, womanizer and traveller — he was the first person in the Scottish Highlands to own a car and his distillery was the first in Scotland to enjoy electricity. In addition, the Major designed and equipped Glen Grant distillery with the tall, slender stills and purifiers that allowed Glen Grant to produce whisky that was noticeably lighter and more delicate as compared to its Scottish brethren.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)

Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
