There’s a reason why Glenfiddich is the world’s most awarded single malt whisky. The Grants are master craftsmen, leading the field from their wee glen in Scotland.
In 1886, William Grant of Dufftown, Scotland, built a distillery on the banks of the River Fiddich. It is still owned and managed by William’s decendants, whose love for an exceptional dram gives Glenfiddich the title of the world’s most awarded single malt whisky.
“Working for the family is a privilege, not a right,” says fifth generation Kirsten Grant Meikle. “We see ourselves as custodians of Glenfiddich for our descendants.” The freedom of that independence as a distillery, means Glendfiddich can maintain their traditions, and innovate with the kind of pioneering spirit that has seen them last through world wars and prohibition. William’s spirit lives on.

Glenfiddich IPA Experiment Glenfiddich malt master, Brian, and Speyside brewer, Seb, are untraditional, to say the least. Introducing the world’s first IPA finished, single malt whisky.
Glenfiddich PROJECT XX We invited 20 (XX, see what we did there?) whisky experts from around the world, and defied protocol entirely by marrying together their favourite 20 malts. The result? Deep gold, candyfloss, cinnamon and almonds. One unexpected whisky.
The best ones are the old ones. Made with the expertise of six generations, each of the classics has its own distinct flavour profile.
Glenfiddich 12 year has been made with the same Highland spring water since 1887. Characteristic sweet, fruity notes develop into butterscotch, cream, malt and subtle oak flavours.
Glenfiddich 15 year is finished in the Solera Vat: never emptied, and kept half full of whisky since 1998. Silky smooth, revealing layers of sherry oak, marzipan, cinnamon and ginger. Full-bodied and bursting with flavour.
Glenfiddich 18 year is the result of 18 years of care and attention, and generations of whisky making craft. Luxurious dried fruit, candy peel and dates. Overlaid with elegant oak notes.
Glenfiddich 21 year is finished in casks that once contained premium Caribbean rum. Initially soft, then brisk, vibrant and drying, peppery, a touch of smoke, oak, lime, ginger and spices.
Glenfiddich 26 year was created to honour Glenfiddich’s line of continuous family ownership. Vibrant with a compelling balance of dry tannin and soft brown sugar vanilla sweetness.
A deep oak flavour gradually builds, with hints of spice and liquorice shining through.
