Glenfarclas Distilllery, Speyside

Glenfarclas Distilllery, Speyside, Scotland

This evening, I am focusing on Glenfarclas Distillery on Speyside, in the shadow of Ben Rinnes, and situated between Aberlour and Grantown-on-Spey.
Glenfarclas is an independent distiller under ownership of the third generation of the Grant family, parent company being J & G Grant.
By Speyside standards Glenfarclas is a medium-size distillery producing about 3.0m litres p.a. compared to 10.0m litres p.a. at Glenfiddich.
The six stills  are biggest on Speyside whilst outside the 30 dunnage warehouses hold all the maturing single malt in, predominantly, former sherry casks.
Here  are the mash tuns and washbacks during production.
Glenfarclas produces a wide range of single malts which include:
  • 40 year old cask strength.
  • 12 year old.
  • 10 year old.
  • 25 year old
  • 30 year old
  • Numerous ‘Family Cask’ releases.
