Grant's recreates whisky 100 years on

12 June, 2012

Grant's master blender Brian Kinsman has recreated William Grant's whisky - Stand Fast.

Using William Grant's notes, Kinsman has made 100 bottles of the whisky, which will not be sold. The whisky marks 100 years since its was first created and Kinsman was also able to use samples of the 100 year old whisky to perfect the recipe.

The Speyside style is said to be "rich" and "honeyed".

The bottles will sit in the family archive alongside the blending book for future generations.

Talking the challenges of cocktail weeks

Having recently returned from the US visiting both Oakland and Arizona Cocktail Weeks I was amazed by the differences in approach. In Oakland there was a much bigger trade focus and it felt more relaxed, whereas in Arizona it was one massive party for consumers.
