Glenfarclas has just celebrated 150 years as a working distillery. That’s quite an achievement. What makes this even more remarkable is that the company has been family-owned its entire existence. John Grant bought the distillery in 1865. His grandsons, John and George, formed the company J & G Grant. Fifth generation family member John L.S. Grant is chairman of the company, and his son George S. Grant serves as brand ambassador.
