The only thing that has changed in 165 years is the label – this is the proud claim about the fine single malt whisky produced at Glenfarclas. It is made by the Grant family who has owned the distillery for six generations. One of the few independent family owned distilleries functioning in Scotland today, the Grant family has owned Glenfarclas since 1865.
The Macallan Distilleries of Speyside in the Highlands produces the Rolls Royce among single malt whiskies. It is a doggedly traditional distillery with its unusually small hand-made copper stills. The distillers insist on a sherry aging, always in dry oloroso casks which are shipped unbroken from Spain. Others rebuild broken casks but Macallan uses the original.
