Claymore Imports “1963 & a 21yo Glen Grant”

1963 Glen Grant (LCBO# 262865) and a 21 year old Glen Grant (LCBO # 262832)

This New Year we have a double release from the Glen Grant Distillery. We have a very rare 1963 which can only be found at five locations in Ontario (see Locations below) – the uniqueness of this fine single malt is reflected at a price point of $504.95. The second new release is a lovely 21 year old Glen Grant at $138.95 which can be found at several locations (see Locations below).

Glen Grant Distillery was the first of five to be built in the town of Rothes. It was built by John & James Grant, two brothers who had previously been involved in illicit distilling. The Glen Grant stills are a unique shape with an almost square section between the pot and the neck. This, together with purifiers on the lyne arms, contributes to Glen Grant’s light, gentle character. Glen Grant is one of the world’s biggest-selling Malt Whiskies, with Italy being a significant market.
