Glenfiddich is one of the big guns in the whisky world. The biggest single malt whisky brand in the world, the distillery is nestled in Dufftown, an area it titles as the ‘heart of the Highlands’. Built brick-by-brick by workers from the local area, the founder, William Grant, had a vision of making the ‘best dram in the valley’. Today Glenfiddich is sold in over 180 countries, surpassing even the wildest of his expectations. Each of the single malt whiskies in the Glenfiddich range are distinctive with character in abundance, and tastes to match the style.
The iconic triangular bottle was designed in 1957, a nod to the importance of the trio of water, air, and malted barley.
Glenfiddich was one of six distilleries to continue overseas exports throughout the prohibition in the U.S.A. Even more remarkably, it was one of a very select few that actually increased exports to the U.S. during this time.
The name Glenfiddich translates in Gaelic to ‘Valley of the Deer’.
