The Glen Grant reveals oldest-ever release

The Glen Grant Single Malt Scotch Whisky unveils a 70-year-old single malt crafted to honour Queen Elizabeth II’s 70-year reign. The oldest release, The Glen Grant Devotion, is sourced from a 1953 French oak butt seasoned with oloroso sherry, and displays deep chestnut hues and a floral aroma. Only seven unique hand-blown decanters, presented as gem-shaped objets d’art, were created by Scottish masters Dennis Malcolm OBE, John Galvin, and Brodie Nairn. Decanter Number One was auctioned by Sotheby’s, achieving a record-breaking £81,250, with proceeds benefiting the Royal Scottish Forestry Society. The remaining six are available for sale in select markets.
