Thieves make off with £100,000 of whisky from Glenfarclas Distillery

Over £100,000 worth of whisky has been  stolen from Glenfarclas Distillery in a burglary that caused “destruction” over the weekend.

According to the distiller, the visitor’s centre was “broken into at approximately 2.45” and “the thieves clearly knew what they wanted as they smashed the cabinets and cleared out all of the oldest and most valuable family casks and a bottle of 60 Year Old, leaving destruction behind”.

The company revealed that “the total value of whisky stolen is over £100,000”.

The Speyside distiller added: “The team are understandably very shaken up by these events. We would ask if you have any information related to this crime or are offered these bottles to please get in touch with us immediately.”

Glenfarclas Distillery, which is based in Ballindalloch, Scotland, is owned and run by the Grant family and is an independent and family-owned business.
