Celebrate the spirit

Say cheers to World Whisky Day...


As the world celebrates World Whisky Day on May 19, indulge in Single Malt Scotch, Glen Grant. According to the company, for the last five years, the 10 Year Old has won the ‘Best Single Malt Scotch Whisky: 10 Years and Younger’ category award in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible. In 2016 the 10 Year Old also took home the guide’s top honour for single malts by winning overall Single Malt of the Year (Multiple Casks). Glen Grant’s 18 Year Old is award winner of ‘Scotch Whisky of the Year 2017’, ‘Single Malt of the Year 2017’ and ‘Best Single Malt Aged 16-21 Year 2017’ by Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible 2017.

Glen Grant’s story began in 1840, in Rothes, Speyside in Scotland by brothers John and James Grant. Its smooth taste is the result of the innovative tall slender stills and revolutionary purifiers that James 'The Major' Grant, son of founder James Grant, introduced over a century ago. Today, Dennis Malcolm directs and presides over the amber liquid; born  in the grounds of Glen Grant in 1946, he has worked for Glen Grant for over five decades. The range includes The Major's Reserve, 5 Year Old, 10 Year Old, 12 Year Old and several others.
