Glen Grant distillery was founded by the Grant brothers, John and James, illegal distillers and alcohol smugglers, when they decided to take a license and build a distillery in 1840. After their death, the distillery was passed down to James “The Major” Grant, a legendary innovator and visionary. He was responsible for designing and setting up new tall slender stills and purifiers, which are responsible for producing a very elegant and refined spirit, that Glen Grant single malt is now most famous for.
