Glenfarclas has the distinction of being one of the oldest family-owned distilleries in Scotland. The distillery was bought by John and George Grant back in 1865 and to this day, their descendants still run it. Another John and George Grant, father and son, are now the fifth and sixth generations to lead the team. With the distillery owned by the same family, they can more easily look to the future.
A strong focus on tradition allied with a fresh look from each generation allows the distillery to adapt to the times, while still producing some of Speyside's finest Scotch whisky, combining traditional techniques with modern technology.
