The original Family Casks Collection was released in 2007 and comprised whiskies from the best casks from the distillery’s warehouses, bottled at cask strength and of natural color.
The collection included 43 different bottlings, with one for each year from 1952 to 1994. The Family Casks are unique, we are not aware of any other collection of old and rare whiskies that covers 43 consecutive years from the same distillery. Glenfarclas 1993 is a continuation of this ambitious project, part of the renowned Family Cask range. The whisky was aged in ex-sherry butt # 3951 and bottled at natural strength of 58.5% on January 25, 2017. The cask yielded 536 bottles.
