In 1886, William Grant, with the help of his nine children and a single stone mason, began the construction of his distillery, situated in the Speyside region of Scotland. William named it Glenfiddich, Gaelic for Valley of the Deer. After a year of hard labor, the first drop of whisky fell from the distillerys copper-pot stills on Christmas Day 1887. Today, Grants passion, determination, and pioneering spirit continue to guide Glenfiddich Distillery, which is stewarded by the fifth generation of the Grant family.
Today, Glenfiddich is the best-selling and most awarded Malt Scotch Whisky in the world. The Glenfiddich range has received more awards since 2000 than any other single malt Scotch whisky in two of the worlds most prestigious competitions, the International Wine & Spirit Competition and the International Spirits Challenge. It is one of the oldest family-owned distilleries in the world, with an independent spirit passed down through generations.
Exemplifying Grants tradition of innovation, Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Whiskey is created using an unusual technique pioneered by the Glenfiddich Distillerys fifth Malt Master, David Stewart, and continued to this day. Aged in European, American, and New American oak to carefully release the virgin cask flavours, the whisky is then mellowed in the distillerys unique Solera vat before being married in Portuguese oak tuns.
Recipient of Gold Outstanding Medal at the 2012 International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) and Silver Medal at the 2013 International Spirits Challenge (ISC), Glenfiddich 15 Year Old is an immensely popular Glenfiddich variant. The enamouring flavours of Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Whiskey are mellowed with the warm spice, honey, and rich fruit characteristics of the Solera vat, inspired by the sherry bodegas of Spain and Portugal.
