Producer
The choice of the name Grand Macnish came about quite simply. Many of Colonel George McNish’s friends, when commenting on the distinctive quality of Macnish would, in the Scots tongue, say it was a “Grand” whisky. Thus the term was adopted and used as part of the brand name, which is today to many thousands, a guarantee of quality. The name “McNish” was the correct spelling of the family name and was only altered to Macnish for ease of pronunciation in all corners of the world. The McNish clan is a sept of the Clan MacGregor. A sept means a clan in the sense that the members of it belong to a branch of a race or family and as such have the right to wear the tartan, etc, of this clan. The clan motto “Forti Nihil Dificile” which means “To the strong nothing is difficult” encapsulates the spirit of the McNish family. In old Grand Macnish advertisements this spirit and dedication to quality was represented by a leaping salmon, a Scottish symbol of both quality and a desire to achieve one’s goal against the odds.
