A fairly basic website, but it does give details of the range of whiskies and the history of the distillery.
Glen Grant has a large visitor centre and extensive 22 acre gardens. The website states "Visitors can choose from guided tours and private tastings offered by our friendly distillery staff", but does not elaborate as to the extent or cost. Distillery is open daily throughout the year
Glen Grant is the only Scottish distillery named after an individual - well two actually the brothers John and James Grant (no direct relation to the Grants of Glenfiddich or those of Glenfarclas). The brothers are still pictured on the label of the single malt.
Glen Grant was the third best selling single malt, based considerably on massive sales in Italy of very young Glen Grant.
Major Grant, who took over the distillery from his father and uncle also built another distillery across the road, originally called Glen Grant #2, with a pipe connecting the two to carry spirit to the original distillery. It was later named Caperdonich, but has demolished in 20??

Independent bottlings are quite common, especially from Gordon & MacPhail, who have been bottling Glen Grant as a single malt since about 1930. At times G&M and the Official Bottles used almost identical labels, and you had to read the small print to work out which is which. Regularly bottled by SMWS.
