Scotland's Whisky Distilleries: Glen Grant

Here we will take a look at one of the most famous whisky distilleries in Scotland, that of Glen Grant.

When it comes to whisky drinking, one has much to choose from. Four different types of whisky are produced in Scotland and there are many different brands that make different types of whisky. There really is a huge choice of flavours and types for the whisky drinker. Here we will take a look at one of the most famous whisky distilleries in Scotland, that of Glen Grant.

  • Glen Grant (no age)
  • Glen Grant 5 year old
  • Glen Grant 10 year old
  • Lord of the Isles

Signature Malt

The signature malt of the Glen Grant whisky distillery has to be the Glen Grant 5 year old. It is a whisky that has a very clean and crisp taste and is a perfect introductory whisky for the novice whisky drinker, but with enough to keep even the most ardent whisky drinker happy.

The Distillery

The Glen Grant whisky distillery is situated in the Rothes area of Morayshire and, as such, is classed as a Speyside whisky. Although Rothes is very much in the heart of the Speyside region, Glen Grant remains almost an enigma against other whiskies produced in the Speyside region. The Glen Grant whisky has a personality all of its own and has a charm that is almost unmatched with many other whiskies produced in Speyside.

The Glen Grant whisky distillery is named in honour of the family that first founded the whisky distillery in the 19th century and is situated in, what can only be described as, a picture-postcard garden that was designed and created by Major James Grant. The garden even includes a whisky safe located by a bridge, where Major James Grant is said to have courted with the ladies.

Bottles of Glen Grant sell in their millions right across Europe and are especially liked in Italy, which is somewhat ironic as the Glen Grant whisky distillery is now owned by the Italian company Campari. Rather strangely, Glen Grant whisky tends to sell better across mainland Europe than it does in the UK, but that may well soon change. The Glen Grant whisky distillery offer tours (it should be noted that children are not permitted into the production areas) of their distillery from late March until late October and, not only is it worth visiting the distillery to see how they make the whisky, the garden itself is worth a visit alone.
