SCOTTISH drinks firm William Grant & Sons, the company behind whisky brands Grant’s, Glenfiddich and The Balvenie, has launched its first ever single grain whisky.
The Girvan Patent Still Single Grain 25 Year Old Scotch is being released exclusively in the UK, priced at £250 a bottle.
Matured in first-fill American white oak, the whisky is described as a pure, fruity and clean-tasting spirit, with a lighter aroma and character than most malt whiskies.
“Characterised by vanilla, toffee, honey and caramelised fruit notes, the whisky delivers a taste that truly reflects William Grant & Sons’ pioneering distillation heritage,” said master distiller John Ross.
The construction of the original Girvan patent still in 1963 was overseen by Charles Gordon, great-grandson of company founder William Grant.
