Whisky dynasty’s sixth generation set for unique Elgin tasting

Moray’s Whisky connoisseurs are being provided with a unique opportunity to learn more about their favourite drink at a special ‘tutored’ tasting this weekend.

George Grant is the sixth generation of a family that has owned and managed one of Scotland’s oldest independently-owned distilleries, the Glenfarclas at Ballindalloch.

Since 1865 Glenfarclas has been owned and managed by the same family and is now in the hands of the fifth and sixth generations of the Grants – who remain committed to the vision of creating the highest quality Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky in the traditional Speyside style.

Mr Grant, who is the ‘brand ambassador’ for Glenfarclas, is to lead an “insider’s tasting evening” of five classic Glenfarclas expressions on Sunday from 7.30pm at the Drouthy Cobbler on Elgin High Street.

The evening will include tastings and discussion over the 25-year-old and 105 ‘Cask Strength’ expression whiskies.

Tickets for the event are priced £12 and are available from the bar or from the Drouthy Cobbler online. www.thedrouthycobbler.co.uk.
