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 stretching back to the early 20th Century, both original and independent bottlings are keenly collected.

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