Glenfarclas 17 Year Old

Glenfarclas_17

Glenfarclas is one of the last family owned distilleries. It has been owned (in some shape or form) by the Grant family since 1865. That’s some real history right there. The distillery was built in 1836. As a family owned distillery, Glenfarclas has a degree of freedom that very few distilleries enjoy. Lack of short sighted pressures from investors has resulted in a good number of older casks. Some of which have been bottled as part of the Family Casks releases. Glenfarclas was also the distillery which began the single cask adventures of Phillip “Pip” Hills that eventually led to the creation of the Scotch Malt Whisky Society.
