While Glenfarclas was founded in 1836, it’s since 1865, when John Grant bought the distillery, that it started to gain recognition. Still owned by the Grant family, it is now run by father-and-son team John and George Grant, who continue the family’s traditional approach to production. Sherry-cask maturation is the signature style at Glenfarclas, producing whiskies loaded with notes of dried fruit and sweet spice.
Our host for the masterclass is son George, the sixth generation of the family to work at the distillery. George is brand ambassador and loves to introduce his family’s whiskies to appreciative drinkers around the world. In this class we will taste some of the distillery’s best whiskies of the past 70 years, including single casks, old bottlings and some of George’s favourite from the current range.
