The crystal-clear spring water, which cascades down the 3,000-foot mountain through peat and granite, is the lifeblood of the Glenfarclas Distillery. After the barley has been malted and mashed, it is fermented using a proprietary yeast culture. The wash — the liquid that remains after fermentation — is then distilled twice through Glenfarclas' copper-pot stills. While most distilleries use modern, steam-powered stills that lengthen the lifespan of the still, Glenfarclas Distillery continues to use traditional direct-heated stills in order to preserve the classic flavors of the Scotch whisky. After distillation, the heads and tails of the distillate are discarded and only about 15% of the distillate — the heart of hearts — is preserved for maturation.Under the stewardship of George Grant, the Glenfarclas Distillery launched its Family Cask Collection — a unique offering of its best single casks of whisky — in 2007. The collection initially comprised 43 single cask bottlings, with one cask from every year between 1952 and 1994. While the collection sold out almost immediately, we were able to secure a few remaining bottles of Glenfarclas 1972 Family Cask No. 3551.
