ruin whisky Grants As the whisky diligence continues to merge, the days of family tree-owned distiller/blenders is quick apt a memories. William Grant & Sons is one of the few noble exceptions, proving that a family tree firm compete with the UDVs of this world by being as self-ample as doable.

Every firm uses its own malts as the core of its blends: Grant’s can draw on the Dufftown triumvirate of Glenfiddich, Balvenie and Kininvie, even if it still buys or exchanges over 40 other malts for its blends. Grant’s also uses its own grain whisky from its distillery in Girvan, which it bottles as Black Barrel.

The need to keep as many of the fillings in-house was the rationale in the rear construction Kininvie in 1990. Constructing a new distillery is everlastingly a abstractedly nervy encounter, as you can never be 100 per cent fastidious how the malt will turn out, how it will mature or how it will go in a blend. Thankfully, Grant’s ever-modest master liquidizer David Stewart is pleased with Kininvie’s normal so far. ‘We built it to give us a fruity note for the blends,’ he clarifies. ‘I’ve been using it in Family tree Set aside for the past four years and eventually it may end up in the 12-year-ancient, even if we still don’t know what a 12-year-ancient Kininvie will be like’.

Kininvie’s arrival doesn’t mean the malts it replaces are at once taken out of the blend, as the administer is a gradual one concerning relentless balancing and rebalancing of flavours and gears in the blends. What is fastidious is that Kininvie won’t scare the attractive, sweet and complicated Grant’s style; where David uses the clean, quick-budding Girvan grain as a platform for some commanding interaction between the malts.

While the Dufftown core ruins the same in the Grant’s range, he uses lighter malts in Clan McGregor and Family tree Set aside, and meatier players such as Cragganmore, Raised ground Park and The Macallan in older blends. ‘There may be more malt in the older blends,’ he says, ‘but don’t underestimate the grain. It does grant flavour as well’.

G RA N T’ S One of the most legendary families in whisky, the Grants had by now built their Glenfiddich distillery three years prior to the launch of their blend – formerly Standfast, now Family tree Set aside.
