Lot number: 066-1353

Still in family hands since it was founded, the Glenfarclas Distillery is one of Speyside's independent whisky producers. The Grant family has been running Glenfarclas since 1860, producing an individual Speyside malt that many whisky enthusiasts number as one of their favourites. The water source is melt water from the slopes of Ben Rinnes which runs through granite and heather before reaching Glenfarclas (meaning 'the valley of green grass'). With a long history of bottlings stretching back to the early 20th Century, both proprietary and independent bottlings are much sought after.

Widely accepted as coming from Glenfarclas. This whisky was specially commissioned by BP Exploration Operating Company to celebrate the 20th anniversary oil production from the Forties Field on September 12th 1975.

Age: 20 years old

40% ABV / 70cl
