Still in family hands since it was founded, the Glenfarclas Distillery is one of Speyside's independent whisky producers. The Grant family have 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.

This Glenfarclas Family Reserve is to celebrate the 150 years of ownership of the Grant family. On the 8th June 1865 that George Grants great-great-great grandfather acquired the tenancy for Rechlerich Farm on the Ballindalloch Estate and as part of if the transaction, purchased the Glenfarclas Distillery for £511.19s.0d.
