Glenfarclas 185th Anniversary - Limited Edition - Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
This wonderful Glenfarclas is the result of two years' work by Callum Fraser "Distillery Manager" who carefully selected 35 of the distilleries finest casks spread over six decades before marrying them together to create this Speyside masterpiece!
An unmistakable Glenfarclas showing a depth of sweetness, spiciness and fruitiness.
In May 1836 Glenfarclas Distillery was officially licenced for the first time, adding the designation “Distillery” to Rechlerich Farm. Therefore, May 2021 marks 185 years of legal distilling and Glenfarclas is celebrating the anniversary with this limited edition bottling.
George Grant, sixth generation family member and current Sales Director, said of the release:
“Due to my grandfather’s foresight, here at Glenfarclas we are very fortunate to have casks in our dunnage warehouses from 8 different decades, from the 1950s to the 2020s. Some of our ware-houses even predate the 185th anniversary we are celebrating, as ‘uisge beatha’ was being made at Glenfarclas a good few years before a licence was held. To mark 185 legal years we have selected some of our finest casks from across the decades and put together a whisky with old, rich, sherried flavours that remain fresh and vibrant in your glass.
Here’s to the next 185 years! Slàinte.”
