Glenfiddich Project XX
20 of the whisky industry’s most exceptional minds came together to create this truly unique, pioneering single malt expression.
With its deep golden hue, Project XX embodies the warm, fruity character of a classic Glenfiddich whisky with hints of apple blossom, summer fruits and ripe pear. But its multiple personalities are revealed with hints of sweet candyfloss, cinnamon spice, almonds and rich port tannins with the odd whisper of liquorice. Deep and mellow, the finish is long lasting with a lingering sweet oakiness.
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.
