Glen Grant Scotch Whisky Distillery, Scotland

Friday, October 09, 2009

Today, I am focusing on Glen Grant Distillery which is located at Rothes on Speyside.

This distillery was founded by John and James Grant in 1840, became a success and stayed in the Grant family until sale to drinks company, Seagrams in 1978 and ultimately to Italian group Campari under whose ownership it currently resides.

Glen Grant's key market is Italy where the 5 year old (40pct) is very popular. There is also a 10 year old, also 40pct. The light malt with a hint of peat is very popular in countries with hot climates.

The distillery offers good tours and features in the Malt Whisky Trail. For those with a horticultural interest, there are also beautifully restored Victorian gardens at the distillery.

Due to photography restrictions, range of available images is restricted, for which I apologise.

Contact me for more information on whisky tours of Speyside.
