The Glenfarclas distillery is one of the last 'family' distilleries in Speyside. Glenfarclas was licensed in 1836 by farm tenant Robert Hay. For a while around 1850 Glenfarclas was also known under the name 'Glenlivet' - but we all know who won the battle for that name... Nowadays, only Glenlivet distillery can use that name.
