Glenfarclas Distillery owners J&G Grant has announced the appointment of George Grant to its board of directors.

George Grant

The sixth generation of his family to work for Glenfarclas, George joined the company in 1997. Having spent two years working with Fine Vintage to promote the single malt Scotch whisky in Hong Kong, he returned to Speyside in 1999.

Since then, George has taken on responsibility for promoting Glenfarclas across North America, Germany and the UK. As sales director, he now oversees the company’s presence in more than 70 markets, overseeing sales growth of over 75% during the last four years.

Welcoming his son to the board, chairman John Grant said: “He has done an excellent job in challenging times over the last few years, and we are confident that as sales director he will continue to grow our brand around the world”.

Among the recent activities from Glenfarclas was last month’s £14,000 joint release with Hine Cognac of 1953 vintage expressions.
