Glenfiddich, a name that is now synonymous with fine whisky, is Gaelic for the "Valley of the Deer." This is the name that William Grant gave to the distillery that he and his children built by hand in 1887. The product of William Grant's lifelong dream, this distillery and the whisky it produced would long outlast its creator, who made an outstanding foundation for this fine line of whiskies to be built on.
More than a century later, the marvellous pieces that make the Glenfiddich so special still remain in use. One-of-a-kind copper stills, high-quality barley, on-site barrel coopers, and spring water drawn from Robbie Dhu are all necessary ingredients to craft this award-winning brand. From the fine range offered, Glenfiddich 18-Year-Old is a great middle-aged whisky. This dark-gold spirit takes advantage of both the Oloroso sherry and bourbon casks used to age it, which give a multifaceted flavour and bouquet to this single malt Scotch.
It is neither the youngest nor the oldest of the collection, meaning that Glenfiddich 18-Year-Old has the robust nature and character that only long years spent in barrels can bring, resulting in a darker flavour than its younger siblings. Full-bodied and full of flavour, this is a luxurious whisky that is beautifully oaky and sure to please.
