The Glen Grant Announces ‘The Glasshouse Collection’


June 19, 2024

Glen Grant Glasshouse Collection

The Glen Grant Single Malt Scotch Whisky, nestled in the heart of Speyside, unveiled The Glasshouse Collection: a new prestige range featuring the oldest aged expressions ever in the distillery’s permanent collection.

The Glen Grant 21-Year-Old is joined by The Glen Grant 25-Year-Old and 30-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whiskies to form a collection of rare single malts which celebrate the unparalleled aging of whiskies from the over 180-year-old distillery. 

The Glasshouse Collection was born from the legacy of The Glen Grant’s visionary forefather James “The Major” Grant. An avid traveler, The Major was a charismatic and eccentric innovator, voyaging to destinations around the world – from Southern Africa to the peaks of the Himalayas.

With every adventure, he collected flowers and plants, bringing them back to Scotland and his vast Victorian-inspired glasshouse, built in 1886 to protect and nurture the most precious and delicate plants, just as the distillery’s warehouses have done with these exquisite spirits for decades.

This is the inspiration for The Glen Grant Glasshouse Collection, comprised of three rare single malt whiskies, created to capture the essence of The Major’s Glasshouse. Each expression reflects a distinct time of day, from the first light of dawn until the moonlit night, using the light inside the glasshouse as a metaphor for the character of each exceptionally aged spirit.

The launch of this new collection marks a significant milestone for The Glen Grant, as legendary Master Distiller Dennis Malcolm OBE approaches his retirement after over six decades in the Scotch whisky industry. The Glasshouse Collection will be the last whiskies to be released under Dennis’ stewardship, but his legacy will be upheld and honoured by his successor Greig Stables, who has worked closely with Dennis over the last 18 years and played a pivotal role in the creation of the new collection. 

“Working alongside Dennis for nearly two decades has been an incredible journey and I’m deeply grateful for his insight and guidance,” Stables said in a news release. “As I become Master Distiller, I carry with me the lessons learned and the guiding vision imparted on this journey.

“I’m honoured to lead The Glen Grant into this new chapter and am excited and enthused for what is to come. Now as we introduce these rare and aged whiskies, I am thrilled we can showcase how exceptionally The Glen Grant spirit ages over time, maintaining its character and integrity. In honour of the launch and the legacy of Dennis, I’d like to raise a toast to him with our Double Gold award winning 25-Year-Old.”

Each carefully aged prestige whisky in The Glasshouse Collection is matured in American oak bourbon barrels and Oloroso Sherry casks within the hallowed walls of the distillery’s oldest traditional stone dunnage warehouse. The signature taller-necked copper stills and water-cooling purifiers, which ensure that only the finest vapors are collected, create the distinct and delicate essence of zesty green apples for which the distillery is known. The character of the three whiskies, 21-, 25-, and 30-Year-Old, represent a journey through the cycle of daylight within the Glasshouse and showcase the aging potential of The Glen Grant spirit.

The Glen Grant 21-Year-Old is bottled at 46% ABV, natural in color, and non-chill filtered, it encapsulates the evocative and aromatic warmth akin to the sun illuminating the day.

The Glen Grant, the distinguished 25-Year-Old, is bottled at 46% ABV, natural in color, and non-chill filtered, this expression embodies the evocative and aromatic warmth reminiscent of the sun gently setting over the Glasshouse during the golden hour.
