The Glen Grant distillery recently unveiled a stunning 21-Year-Old single malt Scotch whisky. The expression was heralded as a “new phase of innovation” by the company. Now the oldest in The Glen Grant’s Scotch whisky range, it underscores the evolution of the company’s offerings and marks a return to its storied, “Sherry-influenced” roots.
Recently, I sat down with Dennis Malcolm OBE, The Glen Grant’s Master Distiller, to talk about his latest single malt Scotch whisky and the distillery’s continued evolution.
According to Malcolm:
The creation of The Glen Grant 21-YO represents a definitive moment in the evolution of The Glen Grant and marks a new chapter in its story. Sitting at the gateway to the prestige expressions of the Glen Grant portfolio, this 21-YO joins the 10-, 12-, 15-, and 18-year-old family of single malts and sets the tone for a range of innovative new releases set to be unveiled from 2023 onwards.
DISTILLERY MANAGER / MASTER DISTILLER
Former engineer Iain McAlister has been our esteemed distillery manager for twelve years. Born and bred in Campbeltown, Iain is fiercely proud of the place, its people and its rich whisky heritage.
Iain is responsible for the smooth running of the distillery. He also keeps a close eye on the distillery’s stock, sampling different years, casks, and finishes to maintain the highest standards of quality control.
Drawing on his background as an engineer, Iain has developed and enhanced production at Glen Scotia, whilst making sure to preserve the craftsmanship and traditional skills we value. After all, it’s these that continue to influence and shape Glen Scotia’s distinctive house style.
Iain’s favorite dram is the award-winning Glen Scotia Double Cask – which he especially enjoys on a Friday night when winding down after a busy week.
