Glenfiddich Original 70cl 40°
Sandy Grant Gordon and his brother Charles, great grandsons of Glenfiddich's creator, this "straight malt" was created in 1963. They decided to launche their Single Malt on the international market in the 60s.
Its a successful gamble, and 50 years later, Brian Kinsman Glenfiddich's cellar master, reproduces this unique recipe with fresh fruit aromas and spices.This exeptionnal Single Malt is baptised "The Original", with sugary notes of vanilla oak and roasted oat.
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.
