Glen Grant Cask Values & Valuations 

Over the years casks of Glen Grant were sold to private customers but perhaps not as many as other distilleries.  Ordinarily, this would mean that prices for casks of Glen Grant would be high.  However, the distillery produces a very high volume of spirit each year and lots of casks are traded away from the public gaze.

That is not to say that prices for Glen Grant casks cannot be high!  Some very old casks of Glen Grant have survived with both a high ABV and RLA meaning that they are very sought after.  Any sherry casks would be highly sought after but they are very uncommon at Glen Grant.

We specialise in the brokerage of Glen Grant casks and have buyers all over the world ready to put forward a no-obligation offer.

The most desirable Glen Grant casks are fresh fill sherry oak casks, however, refill sherry casks are also in demand. Bourbon casks (quite common at Glen Grant) do not command the same premium as sherry casks but can still sell well.

The History of the Glen Grant Distillery

Originally established in 1840 by two of the most famous names in the whisky industry, the brothers James and John Grant, the Glen Grant Distillery has a long-established pedigree. It is perhaps one of the best-known brands of whisky on sale today and is known around the world for its high-quality character.

James and John Grant were one-time smugglers and illegal distillers who decided that they would take out a license to produce whisky in 1840. As the River Spey and the port of Garmouth were close by and there was plenty of barley growing in the nearby plains it seemed to be an ideal location for a whisky distillery. It was thanks to the Grant brothers that the railway was built between Elgin and Lossiemouth, and also that the route was extended to Rothes (something which they paid for themselves in 1858).

The original founders of the distillery had both passed away by 1872 and the operation passed into the hands of James The Major Grant who had always been interested in the distillery and who took over the reins successfully following his uncle’s death.

The Young James Grant was legendary as a traveller, socialiser and innovator, and he loved new ideas. He pioneered electric lighting in the Glen Grant distillery as well as introducing purifiers and tall narrow stills which led to the clear colour and fresh malt flavour which characterises the Glen Grant brand today.

When the last Glengrant died in 1931, he was survived by his 3 daughters and a grandson, Douglas MacKessack who was to inherit the distillery which had, by this time, earned a renowned reputation around the globe. The Glen Grant Distillery and the Glenlivet distillery amalgamated in 1972 with the Longmorn Distillery and Hill, Thomas & Co to become The Glenlivet Distillers Ltd. However, the family maintained its interest in the distillers with the other two shareholders being Suntory and Courage Ltd.

Glen Grant was then acquired by Campari in 2006 when Pernod Ricard acquired Allied Domecq. Today, Glen Grant remains one of the world’s most popular single malts and it is still operated by Dennis Malcolm, a master distiller who was actually born in 1946 at the distillery and began working for the operation back in 1961.
