Glenfarclas 175th Anniversary

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

Glenfarclas 175th AnniversaryHappy birthday Glenfarclas!

Glenfarclas distillery was founded in 1836 and purchased by the Grant’s in 1865 who still run this family company.

The 175th Anniversary of the distillery in 2011 will be celebrated by a limited edition Glenfarclas 175th Anniversary.

It is composed of multiple barrels, one three from every decade that is still found in the warehouses (the oldest is from 1952) and bottled at 43%. The box carries different labels of Glenfarclas bottlings, both old and new designs.

Update: it will be priced around € 100 and it should be available mid January. The UK will get 1800 bottles – 6000 bottles worldwide.

Update 2: it contains 3 casks from every decade, so 18 casks in total. The 50’s and 60’s will add heavy sherry, the 70’s and 80’s bring fruitiness, and the 90’s and 2000’s will add freshness and youth. This should be very interesting.

  • Dirk V.: I think Inge L. does a fantastic job with her whisky flavoured chocolates ;-)

  • SK: 2 years ago I tried the Caol Ila 1982 from Archives. What a fantastic whisky. Since then I always try to stock these Caol Ila from the 80s. Sadly no
