Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Distillery Edition
Matured for 15 years in American and European oak, Glenfiddich 15 year old Distillery Edition is non chill-filtered whisky that gives malt explorers the opportunity to enjoy Glenfiddich stripped back to how it was traditionally made.
On the nose, there is a delicate floral and creamy aroma with hints of freshly ground black pepper. On the palate the smooth, warming flavour is centred on a delicious creamy spiciness, with soft vanilla and gentle luscious fruit. The finish is lingering, sweet and velvety warm.
The Glenfiddich Distillery was founded in Dufftown by William Grant in 1866. Built in the glen of the river Fiddich, the first Glenfiddich single malt ran from the stills on Christmas day in 1887.
A long family tradition followed through the generations, with Glenfiddich one of the few distilleries in Scotland to increase production during the era of prohibition in the USA.
During the tough economic times of the 60’s and 70’s, Glenfiddich and its famous triangular bottle was instrumental in marketing “Single Malt” as the premium Scotch offering, leading to the establishment of the Single Malt category we know today.
Glenfiddich remains to this day a family run business, with current management the 5th generation descendants of Mr William Grant himself.
