All about making whisky
Founded in 1840, Glen Grant for a long time remained the property of the Chivas Brothers group (Pernod Ricard), before winding up in the hands of the Campari group in 2005. Mainly matured in ex-bourbon casks and bottled as a five and ten year old, Glen Grant is a little known single malt, considering the production capacity of its distillery. Producing almost six million litres of pure spirit every year, Glen Grant has the fourth highest capacity in Scotland after Roseisle, Glenfiddich and Macallan. It’s known best amongst single malt amateurs for its first-fill sherry casks released by the independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail.
An independent bottler located in the heart of Speyside, Duncan Taylor has in recent years become one of the largest specialists in old single malts and grain whiskies in Scotland, all bottled at cask strength. Originally a private collection, the wealth of its stock of casks has allowed it to launch various blends on the market containing high percentages of malt, including the famous Black Bull blend, which is available as a 12, 30 and 40 year old.
