Glenfarclas 15 Year Old ‘Cheltenham Edition’ Batch 1

46% abv

Vol- 70cl

This limited edition Glenfarclas pays tribute to the 15 winners of the previous Festival Glenfarclas Cross Country Steeple Chase Races, with each horse listed in order. The 15 Year Old whisky is the first in a trilogy celebrating the fact that Glenfarclas has signed on to sponsor the famous Cross Country Races for another three years, in November, December and March. To further mark the occasion, a share of the profits from the sale of the bottles will go to the Jockey Club’s charity partner, Racing Welfare. Each edition is comprised of only 3,000 bottles filled in clear glass, allowing the natural colour of Glenfarclas to shine through, making this an extra special bottling as Glenfarclas usually bottle in dark glass. The label reflects the 3 litre bottle presented to the winning owner & trainer, so everyone purchasing this bottle can feel like a winner!

Found 5 miles south of Aberlour, Glenfarclas is a rare beast among Scottish distilleries in that it remains family owned.

The distillery was founded in 1836 by Robert Hay and, on his death in 1865, was bought over by father and son, John and George Grant for £511.19s.0d. John Grant left in 1870 to establish Cragganmore nearby and the lease was passed down to his son and has been operated by the Grant family ever since.

Uniquely, Glenfarclas use the "direct-firing" method of heating their stills, i.e. using gas burners, whereas most distillieries these days heat their stills indirectly by means of steam. Once distilled, the new make spirit is predominantly racked into second fill ex-Oloroso sherry butts.

In March 2006 Glenfarclas was named Distiller of the Year by Whisky Magazine “for being consistently good and staying true to its core values” - a statement that we think rings true today.
