Once the barley has been malted and mashed, it is fermented in washbacks made of Oregon Pine. While wooden washbacks are more expensive and difficult to maintain as compared to stainless steel washbacks, they absorb more heat generated during the fermentation process and thus, create a lighter and more rich whisky. Following fermentation, the wash is twice distilled, first through Glen Grant's copper-pot wash still and then again through its spirit still. Each still is equipped with a purifier, which acts as a small condenser and causes a portion of the evaporating vapors to be pumped back into the pot and then re-distilled. This purification process — Glen Grant in the only distillery in Scotland to use purifiers in both distillations — results in whisky that has a signature fresh and malty flavor. Following distillation, Glen Grant Major's Reserve is matured in traditional oak casks until the whisky reaches the peak of perfection. The whisky earned the Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2013.

By 1872, however, both John and James Grant had passed away, and James Grant Jr. — James' son and John's nephew — inherited the distillery. The younger Grant, known simply as "the Major," quickly proved himself a worthy successor.
