A truly exceptional single malt combining eighteen years of care and attention as well as exceptional whisky-making craft and knowledge passed down through the generations.
We use fine Spanish Oloroso wood and American oak to mature this rich, intriguingly fruity and robust oak expression, but there are many more reasons why this expression is special.
We individually number and carefully watch over every batch whilst it is maturing and developing its extraordinary consistency, character and warming, distinguished finish (in a stage of ‘marrying’). We marry our 18 Year Old in small batches of no more than 150 casks, so that our Malt Master can carefully control each element of its aroma and taste.
Glenfiddich has something very unique. It is a true family whisky, with our founder, William Grant, who saw the very first pure spirit flow in 1887, leading the way. Many of the those traditions we still hold on to day such as insisting on using the same highland spring water and sculpting our copper stills to be exact replicas of those of our predecessors. The level of care a family gives, along with skill, drive and dedication, have been passed down to today’s generation. That’s five generations and over 130 years’ worth of whisky wisdom in every dram.
