Two brothers, James and John Grant, after years of illicit distillation, decided in 1840 to establish a legitimate distillery. Situated in the whisky town of Rothes in Speyside Region, the distillery used water from the nearby Black Burn and stills were coal fired. Glen Grant was one of the first industrial buildings in Scotland to be equipped with electric lighting.
The whisky has long been an integral component of Chivas Regal, and is highly regarded by blenders. It is actually known as a first-class whisky along with Glen Rothes & Macallan.
Pernod Ricard sold the distillery to Gruppo Campari in 2006. It is the biggest selling malt whisky in Italy.
The House style is clean, fresh, floral and fruity. Perhaps tangerine, ripe melon with green apples. Medium bodied. A sweet sipping whisky with a complex after glow. Makes for a great aperitif
The unique and alluring nature of Single Cask releases means we cannot bring you the same delightful elixirs again and again – once the whisky is gone, it’s gone for good. The expressions live as a fragment of the past, never to be repeated.
We invite you to delve into our whisky archives. Explore past releases and bask in amber nostalgia, accompanied with distillery history and tasting notes from Mr. Hart himself.
Hart Brothers can trace their origins in the licensed trade back to the late 19th century when the family were licensed victuallers and publicans in Paisley, the mill town on the outskirts of Glasgow. It was not until 1964 that brothers Iain & Donald Hart incorporated the company as Wine & Spirit Wholesalers and Scotch Whisky Blenders.
Alistair Hart joined the company in 1975 and it was his responsibility as chief blender to source vintage casks of single malt whisky that were not readily available through any specialist whisky shop or online whisky site. Today, we continue to secure special and rare malt and grain whiskies that are further matured and only selected for single cask bottling after careful tasting and consideration.
We always pride ourselves on continuing the spirit of excellence by offering some of the finest single malt scotch whisky available through our selected distributors overseas.
We make sure our customers can best share with us the single malt scotch whisky experience which is why we add nothing to the malt whisky other than the purest water. Today, we pride ourselves on continuing the spirit of excellence by offering some of the finest single malt scotch whisky available through our selected distributors overseas.
