Glen Grant Malt Whisky Distillery History.
Brothers James and John Grant founded the distillery in 1840. They were 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.
