Scotland’s favourite whisky was created in 1896 by Matthew Gloag, whose signature is still printed on every bottle of The Famous Grouse sold today. Over the years, generations of the Gloag family have worked with expert blenders, stillmen, coopers, merchants and retailers to make our whisky Famous. Our whisky is more than the sum of its parts. But each of those parts has to be the best. Grain, water, seasoned casks and skilled hands – they’re all vital ingredients in our blend. We’ve been working for generations with many of our suppliers – farmers, maltsters, merchants and others – and we share a commitment to absolute quality.
THE FAMOUS GROUSE
Blending premium whisky isn’t just something we do, it has been the foundation of our craft since 1800. We bring together the finest ingredients to create a natural spirit before the passing of time imparts the wonderful flavour from our handcrafted casks. Add to this the fusion of skilled craftsmen and a tenacious obsession with quality and you arrive at our Famous, rich, sweet, well-rounded whisky.
