Glenfarclas 40YO launched


Glenfarclas has added a 40 year old whisky to its portfolio of Highland single malts. The Scotch has been bottled at 46%abv from casks filled in the late 1960s and selected by George S Grant, director of sales and the sixth generation of the family that own and manage the Speyside distillery.

With good stocks of casks filled in the 1960s, the distillery is now able to offer whisky with a 40 YO age statement as part of its core range. And the use of simple packaging akin to the 10 YO, has enabled J & G Grant to keep the UK RRP down to £350. As George Grant explains: “Compared to other whiskies of a similar age, this has been priced to open and enjoy.” It will be available worldwide, with a quarter of production destined for the US.
