Meet George Grant of Glenfarclas!

We have not seen Glenfarclas 105 in years - maybe 10 years, I cannot remember.  No longer in our system, so that means it has been awhile!  Taste it on Monday with George Grant!

Back in stock!

Glenfarclas Highland Single Malt 105 Cask Strength...$67.99
Colour: Deep peaty-gold.
Nose: Complex, oaky, apples and pears, and a tempting dark toffee sweetness.
Flavour: Dry and assertive, develops quickly to reveal a rich spiciness, combined with a hint of oak and sherried fruit.
Finish: Amazingly smooth for the strength; wonderfully warming and with a lingering smokiness, yet very rounded.
Comment: A great whisky holding all the flavours of all the Glenfarclas in one glass. Being so warming, this is the perfect Hogmanay dram. Don’t be afraid of the strength and order a 210, if you dare!
The smoothness makes the 105 drinkable at cask strength, but I suggest adding a little water to fully explore its great depth.
For its price to performance ratio, the Malt Maniacs named Glenfarclas 105 their ‘Bang for your Buck’ in 2004.

George S. Grant Sales Director
George, son of John, is the sixth generation of the family
and the company's Sales Director. George joined the family business in 2000 after working for another Scotch Whisky Distiller, and the Glenfarclas distributor in Hong Kong; Fine Vintages (Far East) Ltd. George is passionate about Glenfarclas and particularly enjoys introducing whisky lovers to the older expressions of Glenfarclas, those distilled by his grandfather and watched over by his father.

Being a relatively small company you won’t find Glenfarclas in every supermarket, however the family were delighted when their commitment to quality and the traditions of the whisky trade were honoured in 2006 when Whisky Magazine named Glenfarclas 'Distiller of the Year', for 'being consistently good and staying true to its core values'.

December 2016 news:
George Grant, 6th generation of the Glenfarclas family, has been awarded the coveted award of Scotch Whisky Brand Ambassador of the Year at the Whisky Magazine, Icons of Whisky Awards 2017 edition.

The prestigious ceremony saw the whisky industry's biggest names competing for a wide variety of awards, encompassing production and sales teams from distilleries around the world into one memorable event.

The panel of industry experts crowned our very own George Grant as Scotch Whisky Brand Ambassador of the Year, an undoubtedly deserved title earned from over a decade of tireless and passionate representation of the Glenfarclas brand.

Frequently travelling around the world, George has become a formidable character in the whisky industry, known by everyone for his charismatic contributions to our independent distillery and its extensive international markets.

George commented: 'I am delighted to have been chosen for this award amongst strong competition from many dedicated Ambassadors. Being able to share my family's traditions around the world is an honour, and I am grateful to the many people I meet who express their appreciation of Glenfarclas Highland Single Malt whisky.

Thank you to everyone who voted for me, and best of luck for future editions of this memorable event.'

Congratulations George!

Katie (Glenfarclas Brand Ambassador)
