For 20 years William Grant nurtured a dream to make the ‘best dram in the valley’. With the help of his family, he finally achieved that vision. In the summer of 1886, with his seven sons and two daughters by his side, William set out to fulfil a lifelong ambition. Together they began building his Distillery by hand, stone by stone. After a single year of work it was ready and William named it Glenfiddich, Gaelic for Valley of the Deer. William’s passion, determination and pioneering spirit continues to guide us today. Glenfiddich is one of the few single malt distilleries to remain entirely family owned and is now the World’s Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch Whisky, a true reflection of our founder’s innovative nature, passed down through the generations.
The pioneer of the prestigious single malt Scotch whisky category, Glenfiddich 12 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky is today enjoyed by more people around the world than any other single malt whisky. Our original, signature single malt Scotch whisky has matured for at least 12 years in American and European oak casks. The quality of these casks is exceptional as all are individually tended by our experienced team of coopers, ensuring our whisky develops complex, elegantly rounded flavours with notes of fresh pear and subtle oak.
NOSE: Distinctively fresh and fruity with a hint of pear. Beautifully crafted single malt with a delicately balanced fragrance.
PALATE: Characteristic sweet, fruity notes. Develops into elements of butterscotch, cream, malt and subtle oak flavor.
FINISH: Long, smooth and mellow.
