Glen Grant Masterclass
Glen Grant Masterclass

Glen Grant is, in many ways, the single malt that started it all. It's been available in its 'self' (single malt) form from bottlers, grocers and merchants – as well as from the distillery itself – in various ages and iterations since the 19th century. Its beautiful 'highlander' label declaring 'from the heath covered mountains of Scotia I come' has long endeared the whisky to single malt connoisseurs around the world.

Indeed, it was Glen Grant, exported in youthful 5-year-old form by Gordon & MacPhail, that appealed to Italian palates in the 1950s and 60s, and helped kick start that nation's fascination with single malt Scotch whisky. It was a name revered for many years as the benchmark of quality in Scottish single malt. And yet, today it is often overlooked.

Show co-organiser Angus MacRaild has long been a fan of Glen Grant and has selected six bottles from the past 60 years to show how the distillery has been influential across the whisky world. Join him to learn more about the history and spirit of this famed distillery.

NOTE: You must have a valid ticket to Whisky Show Old and Rare on Saturday 29 February to attend the masterclass. It will also start before the official opening of the show – you must ARRIVE by 10:50am to attend.
