Oldest Vintage Glenfarclas Available at Mark Littler Shop

In a notable development for whisky enthusiasts, the Glenfarclas distillery’s rare 1953 58-Year-Old Wealth Solutions edition is now available for purchase. This release marks a significant point in the history of Glenfarclas, as the distillery no longer holds any stock distilled before 1953.

The Glenfarclas 1953 58 Year Old Wealth Solutions, cask number #1674, is listed at £5,151 on the Mark Littler Shop. Distilled on November 20, 1953, and bottled on February 13, 2012, this whisky is now 70 years old. Originating from a single sherry butt, it represents a unique slice of the distillery’s history.

A select panel of whisky experts and connoisseurs, including Serge Valentin of WhiskyFun, Ben Ellefsen of Master of Malt, Michał Kowalski of Wealth Solutions, and George Grant of the Grant family (owners of Glenfarclas), chose this specific cask for bottling. Out of four casks sampled, cask #1674 was selected for its distinct qualities.

Only 400 bottles of this edition were produced, all sold exclusively through Wealth Solutions. This scarcity makes the 1953 Glenfarclas a rare find in the UK market, especially for collectors and aficionados of historic whisky editions. For those interested in acquiring a piece of Glenfarclas’s aged legacy, the bottles are currently available at the Mark Littler Shop.
