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.
After maturation for over thirty years in the finest Oloroso sherry and bourbon casks, Glenfiddich 30 Year Single Malt Scotch Whisky acquires an exquisite complexity of fragrance and flavor. Subtle notes of sherry and fig are balanced with rich dark chocolate flavors creating a sublime whisky of tremendous character. Highly acclaimed by whisky experts, the Glenfiddich 30 Year Old was awarded a gold medal at the prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition.
NOSE: Finely balanced with substantial oakiness matched by fruit and luscious sherry notes.
