Glen Grant (pronounced "glen grr-ant") is a highland glen (valley) about 50 miles due east of Inverness, Scotland. The water flows from the source in Back Burn, through Glen Grant and on to eventually flow past Glen Grant Distillery in Rothes. This Speyside (pronounced "spay-side") distillery produces one of the most famous and most popular single malt whiskies in the world.
