Glen Grant Malt Whisky Distillery History.
Brothers James and John Grant founded the distillery in 1840.
First attracted to the location by the plentiful supply of spring water from the Caperdonich Well on the hillside above.
They had been smugglers and also worked the Dandaleith distillery near Craigellachie during the 1830s.
The Glen Grant distillery is tucked away at the end of the main street of Rothes. While some of the original buildings still remain. The distillery is set round a small courtyard with turreted and gabled offices in the “Scottish Baronial” style, probably dating from the 1880’s. It is a quirky place, traditional in style despite expansions in the 1970’s.
