- Glenfarclas was bought in 1865 for £511.19S by John Grant. To this day, Gelnfarclas has remained independent and is now belongs to the 6th generation of Grants from Glenfarclas. The distillery can be found at the foot of Ben Rinnes, an 840 meter high mountain. Glenfarclas has 6 traditional direct-fired copper pot stills, which are considered to be the biggest on the Speyside. The cloudy "wash" is turned into crystal clear spirit through a double distillation process from a larger "wash still to the smaller "spirit still." Glenfarclas is known for using ex-sherry barrels for the ageing of their malt. They do however also use plain oak casks which previously aged bourbon. Barrles lie dormant for at least 8 years in on-site dunnage warehouses for a minimum of 8 years loosing an average of 0.4% abv per year known as the "Angles Share."
The range boasts many different aged malts. Among the core range are the 10, 15, 21, 25 and 30 year olds with a very recent 40 year old release. Glenfarclas also has vintage casks dating back as far as 1953 which they bottle and sell under their "Family Cask" range.
Aged exclusively in Oloroso casks that are used no more than four times by the distillery. Intense flavours of dried figs and apricots to make a Christmas cake feeling. Hints of spice and smoke are left on the finish.
