Rumour: Glenfarclas is for sale ?

Postby Jan » Tue Nov 21, 2006 6:52 am

I have just read on the website of a Danish retailer, that Glenfarclas is for sale. A bit surprising as the fact that they are independent and family owned are a huge factor in their profile.

Wonder what this will mean for the future bottlings?

(Apologize if this is not news - it was to me)

Edited header to reflect that this only a rumour.

Hi there,

this piece of information could be just plain wrong.

Retailers do often mistakes in their catalogue.

I had a look at the 2007 catalogue of La Maison du whisky, and on every 4 page or so, there is an wrong information.

Yea, I would very be doubtful about this. Unless they are wanting to get out of the business, and are selling at top dollar. I really highly doubt this.

Oh, and if it was for sale, I think it would make this site's news page! As they just voted them distillery of the year. Big news, if it was real.

Hi guys

Ok, I had a closer look at the site where I spotted this tidbid of information.

I now see that this is written under the heading "Rumours from the World of Whisky".

So fundamentally this is just a rumour - and not confirmed in any way.
Sorry my initial post did not reflect this fact. :oops:

If anybody hears more about this, please share :wink:
