Glenfiddich 23 Years Old Grand Cru 70cl 40°
Glenfiddich 23 years old Grand Cru is the result of a new experiment by cellar master Brian Kinsman. This Single Malt is the culmination of an original association between the excellence of French wines with the legendary know-how of Scottish whiskey from Speyside.
This Grand Cru from Glenfiddich is thus a blend of whiskies aged at least 23 years in ex-Bourbon casks and ex-Sherry casks, before a final finish in French oak barrels containing exceptional wines from the Champagne region, where is from the best sparkling wines in the world.
The whole is impressive of delicacy with a rare intensity of aromas of toasted bread, brioche, slightly lemony and floral.

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.
