Once a cow herder, William Grant secretly learned the trade at the Mortlach Distillery where he was a bookkeeper for two decades. In 1887, William Grant resigned from his position and built his first, family-owned distillery in Scotland. At the time, it was operated by his family members – George Grant was the maltman, Charlie Grant handled the tuns, Alec Grant was the still-man – even his daughter Meta helped by bringing them lunch.

Possessing the ability to see the bigger picture, William Grant never stopped making whisky, not even during the Prohibition times when other distilleries were shutting their doors. Not Grant – he even increased production, knowing this too shall pass. Today, five generations have passed at William Grant & Sons, and among their many high-end brands, one can find Glenfiddich and The Balvenie as well as Grant's Whisky. The operation is still family-owned, run by Grant's descendants, and independent. With its own team of coopers, distillers, and maturation experts, Grant's Whisky makes premium, traditional whisky based on William Grant’s original recipe.

A part of Grant's Cask Editions, the 8 Year Old Sherry Cask Edition Whisky is a blended whisky that was first aged in oak barrels for 8 years before being transferred into oloroso sherry casks that were hand-selected in Spain by Grant's Master Blender. Rich, fruity, and smooth, the expression is bottled at 80 proof.
