From Grain to Glass

Pure Spring Water

To produce Glenfarclas Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky, these three essential ingredients are required: pure spring water, malted barley, and yeast. These finest ingredients, combined with the unique size and shape of the copper pot stills, traditional distillation methods, the specially selected oak casks, and the style and location of the warehouses, are all important factors determining the final unique character of Glenfarclas.

The heather clad slopes of the 840 metre high Ben Rinnes mountain, purple in autumn and snow clad in winter, rise up majestically behind the distillery. The melting snows of winter seep down through the peat, deep into the granite below, rising up as pure, crystal clear spring water, soft and slightly acidic, ideal for making whisky. The water in Speyside is exceptional for producing malt whisky, and over half the distilleries in Scotland are located in this region.
