Glen Grant 60 Year Old Dennis Malcolm 60th Anniversary

Glen Grant is one of Speyside's most recognised distilleries. It was built in 1839 by James and John Grant, and was a huge facility for its time. Its size increased exponentially over time, in the hands of John's son, John "The Major" Grant (who also built the short-lived Caperdonich next-door), and twice in the 1970s following the merger with The Glenlivet Distillers and its subsequent takeover by Seagram. Glen Grant was bottled as a single malt as early as the late-19th century, and developed a global export market. None perhaps as important as in Italy, where their agent in the 1960s, Armando Giovinetti, turned it into the nation's favourite whisky, after discovering the palate preferences of his countrymen for very young single malts. So loved is Glen Grant in Italy, that the distillery is now owned by Gruppo Campari, who bought it from Pernod Ricard in 2006.

This whisky was filled into single ex-Oloroso sherry cask #5040 on 24th October 1960. When it was released in late 2021, it became distillery’s oldest bottling in its 181-year history.

The release celebrates the 60th anniversary of Master Distiller Dennis Malcolm’s six decades in whisky.

One of 360 hand-blown crystal glass, designed by Glencairn Studio. 

Due to the size and weight of this item, this lot will include a four bottle shipping fee.
