Glenfarclas Whisky

The famed malty and chocolatey nature of Glenfarclas has been noted for generations. Their whiskies often heavily infulenced by sherry casks which adds an impressive complexity to this otherwise gentle Speysider. For as long as we remember Glenfarclas has been a perennial favourite of our staff with many of them calling it a 'must-try'

Although the distillery was licenced in 1844 (although it's widely thought illicit distilling had been taking place on the site for many years) by Robert Hay, the legacy of Glenfarclas is tied to the family that bought it from him. John Grant bought the distillery in 1965 after Robert Hay's death and it has stayed in family ownership ever since. In fact, every man to have run the compnay has been called either John or George (thus the name of the company).

 

The independent ownership has allowed Glenfarclas to make their whisky as they see fit. One of the main things that sets them apart is directly firing their stills. This partice has mostly be phased out in the Scotch whisky industry as it helps preserve the stills themselves. Glenfarclas, in fact, once tried to move awy from this but found that they didn't enjoy the flavours produced. They quickly went back to heating the stills directly.

 

Glenfarclas is also famed for its use of sherry casks fro Jerez. In fact the distillery have stated that they will never use a new, or first-fill cask for their whisky as they find it does not produce the flavours they desire. Witgh attention to detail like this you can see why Glenfarclas has won the hearts of many whisky fans all over the world.
