About William Grant & Sons

William Grant & Sons is a distiller of premium spirits and today remains a 100% family owned company controlled by the fifth generation of the family.

Our founder, William Grant, was born in 1839 in the Scottish Highland town of Dufftown. He began work tending cattle at the age of 7, but it wasn’t until 1866 - when he took a position as a bookkeeper at a local distillery - that he really found his calling. There, he instantly fell in love with the industry, and swiftly became Distillery Manager.

William was a good natured and popular man. He was also patient, and single-mindedly determined. For 20 years, he nurturedthe dream of building his own distillery so that he could create ‘the best dram in the valley’ (‘dram’ is the Scottish word for a measure of whisky).
