Glenfarclas Highland Whisky 185th Anniversary

In May 1836 Glenfarclas Distillery was officially licenced for the first time, adding the designation “Distillery” to Rechlerich Farm. Therefore, May 2021 marks 185 years of legal distilling and Glenfarclas is celebrating the anniversary with a limited-edition bottling.

Glenfarclas means ‘Valley of the Green Grassland’ and the spring water. This ensures the verdant green grass, is essential to the distinct flavour of Glenfarclas Highland single malt whisky. It bubbles up, crystal clear, from the underlying granite on the slopes of the Speyside mountain, Ben Rinnes, to supply the distillery below.

Combining the finest malt barley, distilling twice in traditional, direct fired, copper pot stills. Collecting only the lightest and best fractions of alcohol. Filling two thirds into the finest Spanish sherry oak casks. And one third into plain oak casks in which to lie maturing over many years.

  • Only 6,000 bottles of this limited-edition release Glenfarclas Highland Whisky 185th Anniversary are available in the United Kingdom
  • Rich and sherried offering notes of dried fruit, Christmas cake, baking spices and toffee throughout the palate
  • Fresh and vibrant in your glass

George Grant, sixth generation family member and current Sales Director, said of the release: “Due to my grandfather’s foresight, here at Glenfarclas we are very fortunate to have casks in our dunnage warehouses from 8 different decades, from the 1950s to the 2020s. Some of our warehouses even predate the 185th anniversary we are celebrating.

Family owned steeped in tradition

In 1865, Glenfarclas distillery, nestled in the heart of Speyside, was purchased by a cattle breeder by the name of John Grant. Today, the Glenfarclas spirit still lives strong and continues in family ownership under the direction of 5th generation owner, John Grant.

Glenfarclas means ‘Valley of the Green Grassland’ and the spring water, which ensures the verdant green grass, is essential to the distinct flavour of Glenfarclas Highland Single Malt Whisky. It bubbles up, crystal clear, from the underlying granite on the slopes of the Speyside mountain, Ben Rinnes, to supply the distillery below.

There it is combined with the finest malted barley, twice distilled in traditional, direct fired, copper pot stills and only the lightest and best fractions of alcohol are collected to be filled into the finest Spanish Sherry oak casks and lie maturing over many years.

Times may have changed, but it’s what has stayed the same that makes Glenfarclas unique: the six generations of Grant family pride and the revered quality of their famous Single Malt Whisky.
