The Distillery

Robert Hay founded the Glenfarclas distillery in 1844 with equipment from the Dandaliet distillery. When Robert Hay died in 1865, the distillery was taken over by John Grant, and is nowadays still in its family.
John rented the distillery for the 5 first years out to John Smith who built Cragganmore some years later. John Grant ran the distillery with his son George who died one year after his father. His wife Barbara inherited the distillery licence, and his two sons John and George Grant took over the business .
Glenfarclas is one of the few independent and familial distilleries from Scotland.
Grant sold 50% of the shares in 1896 to Patisson, Elder en Co to finance the alteration works. Despite a honest sharing of the profits, Patisson was bankrupt in 1899, and the distillery become the exclusive property of the Grant family again.
The current manager, John, represents the fifth generation of Grants in the management board of Glenfarclas.
The distillery was rebuild in 1897. The production capacity was doubled in 1960. Two more stills were installed in 1976.
The distillery was one of the first ones to market a cask strength version of its malt: the Glenfarclas 105.
Nearly half of the production is marketed as single malt, the remaining part being used in blends.

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
