Glenfarklas distillery was built in 1836 as part of a farm that belonged to John Grant. He put quite a successful start of production, and very soon it became a popular malt whiskey in the area, thanks to its high quality. Glenfarclas distillery name translated from gellskogo language means "Valley of the green grass." The distillery is located at the foot of the mountain Ben Rinnes, which grows on the slopes of heather. It is from sources coming down from the mountain, the distillery provides a clean soft spring water. The secret special bouquet of whiskey Glenfarklas is not only high quality water, but also the use of certain varieties of barley, which grows near in the valley of special yeast, traditional methods of distillation (Glenfarkslas proud of its six largest in Scotland stills) and the duration of exposure in barrels of sherry Fino and Oloroso. Currently, John and his son George are respectively the fifth and sixth generation of the family Grant and continue to improve the art of whiskey production.
