Glenfarclas distillery is a Speysidewhiskydistillery in Ballindalloch, Scotland. Glenfarclas translates as meaning valley of the green grass. The distillery opened in 1865 and has been owned and operated by five generations of the Grant family and is one of the few distilleries in Scotland to maintain that distinction.
