Best shop in Calais to buy Glenfarclas Speyside Single Malt Whiskey. Glenfarclas (Green Grass Valley in Gaelic) is a single malt distillery located in Ballindalloch since 1836 in the heart of Speyside at the foot of the Ben Rinnes. The family Grant is the owner of this distillery and it is this family spirit that allows this distillery to be relatively safe from decisions taken solely for financial reasons. For example, Genfarclas malts are mostly aged in sherry casks, which are much more expensive than Bourbon casks. It is at this price that the characteristics of Glenfarclas whiskeys are preserved. The sherry casks bring to the range of notes of Christmas Pudding, blond tobacco, raisins and nutmeg. It is this same family spirit that prevailed when the Grant family chose the Mälher Besse family (merchant in Bordeaux and owner of Château Palmer in Margaux) to distribute Glenfarclas in France. For the record, the Grant family was looking for a pied-à-terre midway between Glenlivet and Edinburgh at a time when traveling was taking time. Their attention then fell on Glenfarclas, nobody regrets it. Although Glenfarclas' labels include Highland single malt, Glenfarclas is a Speyside distillery producing a Speyside. In fact historically the Speyside area was considered part of the Highlands. With almost half the number of distilleries still in operation, Speyside is now a full-fledged region in the classification of Scotch whiskeys.
