If you're not a major scotch lover, this could be the scotch for you. I think this is the only scotch my bourbon-loving father will drink at affairs hosted by Scotch lovers.
This exceptional Glenfiddich 21 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky is uniquely finished for up to four months in hand-selected bourbon barrels that once contained rum from the Caribbean, infusing this rare whisky with a rich and indulgent toffee sweetness. On the nose, rich aromas of fig, fudge and hints of ripe banana combine elegantly, while on the palate complex favours of vanilla toffee and spice intermingle with warm oak and the merest hint of smoke.
In the summer of 1886 our founder, William Grant, set out to fulfil a lifelong ambition of creating the 'best dram in the valley'.
With the help of his seven sons and two daughters, William built his distillery in a single year. Their hard work was rewarded on Christmas Day 1887 when the first drop of spirit flowed from the small copper pot stills. William named his distillery Glenfiddich, Gaelic for 'Valley of the Deer'.
Over 120 years later, Glenfiddich is one of the few single malt distilleries to remain entirely family owned and our whisky has become the world's most awarded single malt*, a true reflection of the passion, integrity and innovative spirit that have been passed down through the generations.
