Only three years after the end of the World War II and in the year when the Marshall Plan was in effect, cask number 1369 was filled with a fresh distillate. The world faced great transformation; borders, governments and political blocks changed while Glen Grant whisky was aging and gaining its unique aroma and flavour from a cask previously filled with sherry. Today, the golden liquid form was poured – thanks to Gordon & MacPhail – into a mere 160 bottles for collectors and whisky enthusiasts to enjoy.
A limited edition of the oldest whisky from Glen Grant distillery and one of the oldest whiskies in the world requires unique packaging. As the whisky was introduced to the market, Charles MacLean, one of the world’s biggest authorities on whisky, has prepared a special study on the distillery and the project. Each of the numbered Glen Grant 1948 66 YO bottles is accompanied by his book and a specially designed oak case. The uniqueness, limited number, age and exclusive packaging make the Glen Grant 1948 66 YO whisky a unique collector’s item and a good capital investment.
