Glenfarclas Visitor Center robbed: £100,000 worth of whisky stolen

Among the stolen single malts is a bottle of 60-year-old Glenfarclas

 

The Glenfarclas distillery announced unpleasant news on social media: thieves had broken into the whisky distillery's visitor center during the night to Sunday and attempted major damage.

Glenfarclas writes: „The pictures we never thought we would post… We are horrified to have to share that our Visitor Centre was broken into at approximately 2.45 this morning. The thieves clearly knew what they wanted as they smashed the cabinets and cleared out all the oldest and most valuable Family Casks and a bottle of 60 Year Old, leaving destruction behind. The total value of the whisky stolen is over £100,000.

The team are understandably very shaken up by these events. We would ask if you have any information related to this crime or are offered these bottles to please get in touch with us immediately, and please share this post.“
