The Girvan Patent Still 25 Year Old, born from a determination to put the spot light on grain whisky. In 2013 William Grant & Sons introduced a range of Single Grain whiskies from their Girvan distillery in Ayrshire. The 25yo was the launch edition. Aged for an impressive 25 years providing sweet, fruity and complex flavour notes. The original Girvan Patent Still was built by William Grant's great-grandson, Charles Gordon, in 1963, when it was given the rather catchy name "No 1 Apps" (referring to the term apparatus).
