J. & G. Grant are delighted to announce the launch of the new Glenfarclas 40 Years Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky. This single malt highlights the beginning of a new era as Glenfarclas now marks 180 years of production since its establishment in 1836.

The long awaited expression is to be released in bespoke packaging; a red wooden box designed to recreate the iconic Glenfarclas warehouse doors is presented inside a classic grey tertiary box. The red doors include a glossy metallic 40 Years Old age statement with Glenfarclas Warehouse stencilling, while the inside of the box reveals a dark grey interior, replicating the grey stonework of the Glenfarclas traditional dunnage style warehousing.

The Glenfarclas 40 Years Old, now at 43%, has a fresh sweetness and fruity Turkish delight aroma on the nose. Its freshness and power is similar to the first time you open a bag of freshly ground java coffee beans. Notes of light heather honey spread liberally over freshly buttered toast reveal a sweet taste, followed by a peppering of caramel and chocolate explosions. Sherry power creeping its way to the back of your mouth releases dark chocolate, raisins, and sultanas. It ends with a sweet, crisp, dry and lingering finish.

Country Of Origin: Scotland
Since 1865 Glenfarclas has been owned and managed by just one family, the Grants of Glenfarclas. On the 8th of June 1865 John Grant acquired the tenancy for the Rechlerich Farm and as part of the transaction purchased the Glenfarclas Distillery for �511.19s.0d. To this day Glenfarclas is one of only a few distilleries in Scotland to remain family owned and managed. Now in the hands of the fifth and sixth generation of the family, the Grants remain committed to the vision of creating the best quality Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky, in the traditional Speyside style.

Glenfarclas is renowned for producing Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky in the traditional Speyside style, with a heavy Sherry influence. We produce a wide range of expressions from the mouthwatering freshness of the 10 Years Old, to the indulgent 30 Years Old.

The distinctive character of Glenfarclas Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky, for which only three essential ingredients are required; pure spring water, malted barley and yeast, is due to the Grant family�s commitment to traditional distillation methods, combined with the unique size and shape of the Glenfarclas copper pot stills, the specially selected oak casks, and the style and location of the warehouses.

The spring water which ensured the plentiful green grass proved to be one of the essential components contributing to the distinct flavour of Glenfarclas highland Single Malt Whisky. Crystal clear, it bubbles up from the underlying granite on the slopes of the Speyside mountain, Ben Rinnes, to supply the distillery below. Here it combines with the finest malted barley to provide a mash which is then twice distilled in traditional, direct fired, copper pot stills; the largest in Speyside. Only the lightest and best fractions of alcohol are collected and it has been said that it is the whisky they don�t use that makes Glenfarclas great.
