Glenfarclas means ‘Valley of the Green Grassland’ in Gaelic. It has been producing single malt scotch for over 150 years and was the first whisky producer in Scotland to sell ‘cask-strength’ whisky, back in 1968. In 2007, Glenfarclas released the 'Family Casks' range, a collection of the best single casks from the distillery, with a bottling released every year since 1954, and new bottles introduced each year.
The distillery sits at the foot of Ben Rinnes in the Scotch industry heartland of Speyside. The team uses the spring water that filters through the underlying granite of the mountain to supply Glenfarclas. Distilled twice in traditional direct-fired stills, the spirit is then aged in ex-Oloroso sherry casks from Bodega José y Miguel Martin Jose and Miguel Martin in Spain. The result is a timeless collection of aged whiskies.
