On the 20th of May 2011, J. & G. Grant held a dinner and ceilidh to celebrate the 175th Anniversary of the Glenfarclas Distillery. Whilst the date of the first distillation at Glenfarclas is lost in the mists of time, the granting of the first license in 1836, is considered the distillery's formal date of establishment. The event was held in warehouse 14, which was also the venue in 1986 for a party to celebrate the distillery's 150th anniversary. The guests, which included members of the Grant family, staff, suppliers and customers, enjoyed a single cask specially bottled for the occasion.
