The Glen Grant Announces The Dennis Malcolm 60th Anniversary Edition
The Glen Grant Distillery has announced an exclusive, limited edition 60-year-old single malt scotch whisky in celebration of the career of Master Distiller Dennis Malcolm.
The limited offering is bottled from a single ex-Oloroso sherry cask (#5040) that was filled on October 24, 1960 – the oldest, to date, distillery bottling in the brand’s 181-year history, with just 360 Decanters of the liquid available worldwide.
“With the launch of The Glen Grant® Dennis Malcolm 60th Anniversary Edition, we celebrate and pay tribute to the career of a true Scottish gentleman and globally recognized Scotch Whisky craftsman,” said Bob Kunze-Concewitz, Campari Group CEO.
“Dennis has not only created some of the most-awarded single malts in the world but also serves as an unwavering champion for the industry.”
“It’s never been a job to me, it’s been a way of life,” said Malcolm, who started with The Glen Grant at age 15 making barrels.
“I don’t like my actual birthday – that makes me a year older. But I like my milestones with Glen Grant because it’s a year longer than I’m here. I can keep doing what I was destined to do.”
Each marked with a bespoke number, every one of the 360 decanters has been made from hand-blown crystal glass, designed by world-renowned Glencairn Studio, and is based on the design of the distillery’s unique tall slender pot stills.
Nestled in an elegant presentation case crafted from sustainable walnut, the decanter itself requires over 15 hours of expert craftsmanship for each creation, encompassing intricate details which symbolize the unique aromas of The Glen Grant.
Each presentation case has the Master Distiller’s signature engraved within it and includes a Certificate of Authenticity, signed personally by Dennis Malcolm.
The Glen Grant Dennis Malcolm 60th Anniversary Edition aged 60 years is bottled at 52.8% ABV and is non-chill filtered to retain optimal flavor and aroma. Available from October it will be available at selected global retailers at an RRP of € 25,000.00 (roughly $29,500 USD).
