Hefty £17,500 Price tag for the Oldest Whiskey from the Speyside Distillery

February 6, 2019

 Filled in 1948, this cask of Glen Grant has been slowly  nurtured by Gordon and MacPhail for 70 years and is now ready for release. With just 210 bottles released, the price tag reflects the age and quality of the whiskey. Explaining the history of this cask, Stephen Rankin, Gordon and MacPhail’s director of prestige, said: My great-grandfather, John, selected the first fill Sherry butt in 1948 to fill with new-make spirit from Glen Grant. My family has patiently watched over this cask, regularly monitoring and sampling the whisky, recognising the right moment to bottle it at its ultimate peak.”
