Whisky | From Highland To Lowland

Lot 89


43% ABV / 75cl

Still independently owned, Glenfarclas has been operated by the Grant Family since 1865 when John Grant bought the distillery for the princely sum of £511.19s.0d. In today’s money that’s about £69,000, so still a bargain.
The distillery’s microclimate ensures one of the lowest Angel’s Shares in Scotland, allowing Glenfarclas to release staggeringly old expressions that still boast eye watering ABVs, and their (almost) exclusive use of European oak Sherry Casks results in a whisky that’s resinous and rich in dried fruit notes.
