The steep-sided valley where the Fiddich River flows, gave its name to the best-selling malt in the world.


The distillery is located on the banks of the river in Dufftown. Fiddich translates as “stag” from Gaelic and here’s why the animal is now the emblem of the distillery. This famous distillery has been established in 1886 and is still in the hands of the same family (as a limited company). In 1963, the company bet on spreading the Single Malt outside the borders of Scotland – which was considered as pure folly by blended scotch producers, deeming Single Malts as too intense, too richly aromatic or too complex for non-Scots drinkers. Glenfiddich remained traditional and is still heating its small stills with coal and ageing spirit in casks. The whiskies, aged in different woods, are blended in the Glenfiddich cellars, and bottled “at the chateau”! In fact, the distillery overlooks the complete bottling process. Glenfiddich is proud to own the most rewarded Single malt whisky range in the world.

Colour: topaz, reflects and light amber glow.

Nose: sunny and warm. Dark chocolate, vanilla and dried fruits (nuts, almonds), over a spice mix of curcuma and ginger, aromatic herbs and heady flowers (honeysuckle and gardenia). Appealing with its fruit compote, but also quite mineral (slate, emeri cloth).

Palate: firstly firm and nervous, quickly gaining more appeal and mellowness (mirabelle and greengage plum). Hold together by a refreshing tangyness, with Sherry underlined by toffee, a hint of salt, blond tobacco and citrus fruits (tangerines, bitter oranges).

Finish: liquorice and tannins envelop the palate. Lovely herbal notes (ivy, meadow mushroom) develop alongside mild spices (cinnamon and nutmeg). Very pleasant mentholated freshness. Evokes a basket of freshly picked garden vegetables. Will be greatly appreciated by purists.
