by Melita Kiely

Independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail has released six Glen Grant Scotch whiskies as a complete collection, comprising vintage single malts from each year between 1950-1955.

The six Speyside bottlings includes The Rare Vintage Glen Grant 1954 and The Rare Vintage Glen Grant 1952. Priced at RRP £9,995 in the UK, only 75 Glen Grant collections will be made available from today (4 September) in the first release. Stephen Rankin, director and member of the fourth generation of the Urquhart family which owns Gordon & MacPhail: “By creating this collection, we have captured a unique piece of Scotland’s liquid history, bringing together a combined 353 years of knowledge, expertise and whisky maturation. “With six whiskies aged between 57 and 61 years old, this collection is a testament to the company’s ability to nurture aged expressions.” Speyside-based Glen Grant Distillery was built in 1840 by brothers John and James Grant near the River Spey. The brothers had been illicit whisky distillers up until this point.
