Glen Grant Distillery
Water Source: Caperdonich Well
Glen Grant Distillery was the first of five to be built in the town of Rothes. It was built by John & James Grant, two brothers who had previously been involved in illicit distilling.
The Glen Grant stills are a unique shape with an almost square section between the pot and the neck. This, together with purifiers on the lyne arms, contributes to Glen Grant's light, gentle character.
Glen Grant is one of the world's biggest-selling Malt Whiskies, with Italy being a significant market.
