Glenfarclas is one of the few remaining independantly owned distilleries in Scotland. It was established in 1836 and is located in the Speyside region in Ballindalloch, Scotland. Glenfarclas can be translated as ‚Äúthe valley of the green grass‚Äù. It was bought by John Grant in 1865 and to this day is owned by his descendants. The distillery has 6 copper pot stills, which are the largest in Speyside, and it is one of the few distilleries that mature its whisky on site in traditional dunnage warehouses.
