Volume: 700ml ABV: 40% Age: 15 Years Old Country: Scotland
Glenfiddich is one of the most well known and loved distilleries in the world and is owned by William Grant & Sons. The distillery sits in the town of Dufftown in Moray in the Speyside whisky region of Scotland. Glenfiddich means ‘valley of the deer’ in Scottish Gaelic which is why the distillery logo is a stag. Founded in 1886 by William Grant who was also the founder of The Balvenie and Mortlach distilleries. The output of this distillery is over 10 million litres of spirit each year which makes this one of the largest single malt distilleries in the world in terms of output. Because of this it is nicknamed ‘the giant’. The distillery boasts 30 stills and 24 washbacks, it’s own cooperage and its own bottling hall. With 43 warehouses onsite to mature the whisky. They use mainly ex bourbon American Oak barrels to mature the whisky but also use rum casks from the Caribbean, and sherryfrom Jerez in Spain.
Exemplifying Glenfiddich’s family tradition of innovation, the 15 Year Old expression is created using a technique pioneered by the Malt Master and its warm, spicy flavours are transformed with the alchemy of the Solera Vat. Aged in European oak sherry casks and new oak casks, the whisky is mellowed in a unique Solera Vat, a large oak tun inspired by the sherry bodegas of Spain and Portugal.
