Anniversary Vintage 1987

Rich fruit cake, leather and oak

Born of the centenary celebrations at our Distillery, our 1987 Anniversary Vintage comes from a single cask distilled by the Grant family on Christmas Day. The cask was individually chosen by William Grant’s great great grandson, Peter Gordon, together with his son Dougal, exactly 25 years later.

Hand bottled and limited to just 286 individually numbered and exquisitely packaged bottles, our Anniversary Vintage represents the best of our traditions, with a velvety texture, a complex and intriguing nose, a rich, spicy taste and a luxurious, mouth coating oiliness with a long oaky finish.
