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.
Our Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, waits 14 years as the whisky matures in ex-bourbon American Oak casks. He then finishes the whisky in charred new American Oak barrels supplied by The Kelvin Cooperage in Louisville, Kentucky.
The result is a rich, sweet and vibrant Glenfiddich 14 Year Bourbon Barrel Reserve Single Malt Scotch Whisky that delivers complex flavors of woody spices with ripe summer fruit. It’s an expression that will inspire Scotch and bourbon lovers alike, to Rethink Whisky.
