William Grants

The story of William Grant's whisky is one all about family. It was in 1887 when William Grant opened his first distillery in Scotland with the help of his seven sons and two daughters. William Grant knew a thing or two about a good workforce. George Grant was his maltman, Charlie Grant operated the tuns, Alec Grant was his still-man, and his youngest daughter Meta? Well, the seven year old brought the boys lunch. Now that's a family business. William Grant’s son-in-law, Charles Gordon, became the company’s first salesman. Knocking on doors, trying to make his first sale. He called at 180 establishments before finding his first customer. Which may have had something to do with the fact that the 181st was the first place he gave a sample to. This job saw him sailing to the Far East, which took months at a time. Luckily he never had to take much home again. So the return leg was always a little speedier. During prohibition most distillery owners shut their doors, but not William Grant. He went against the grain and actually increased production. Guess he knew the world wouldn’t be able to resist great whisky forever. Today Grant’s Scotch Whisky is enjoyed by whisky drinkers in over 180 countries. The deliciously complex taste and long smooth finish of our whisky is available in a range of exceptional variants including Grant’s Family Reserve - recognised the world over for its iconic triangular bottle;  and the deliciously different cask-finished whiskies. The consistent, clean and complex nature of our whiskies sets us apart from other blended Scotches, contributing to a staggering 58 industry awards and high accolades across their Scotch whisky range.
