James ‘The Major’ Grant son of founder James Grant, was one the first invent innovative tall slender stills and revolutionary purifiers over a century ago. Still used to this day, this lasting legacy continues to distinguish the brand, resulting in the elegant and seductively smooth taste for which Glen Grant is renowned.
