Back to basics.

Glenfiddich, probably the world’s most famous distillery, was founded in 1876, with the first spirit running of the stills in 1887. It has since then established itself as a definite crowd favourite and the number one selling single malt in the world. With a production capacity of more than 10 million litres of alcohol per year it is both the largest distillery and the world’s most awarded single malt.

Interestingly, the Grant family, who started the company way back when, still owns it to this day. One of the major reasons behind the burgeoning success of the 20th century stems from the fact that they were the first distillery to introduce single malt Whisky to the international stage. The company has a range of malts of all ages, each with their own set of specific fans.

Lucky for you ‘Fiddich fans out there, we have another strong contender to be your new favourite dram. And when we say strong, we really mean strong as an ox. Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Distillery Edition is definitely not for the faint of heart, since it packs one hell of a punch at 51 % ABV. Matured in a mixture of traditional American and European oak, is not chill filtered to protect all its subtle flavours. Exactly as it was made in the cask.

The beauty of this Whisky is that it doesn’t pretend to be flashy and posh. No extravagant labelling, no pretentious story. Just a good old-fashioned Glenfiddich we know and love, stripped to the bone. The classic everyday dram.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
This massive success of Glenfiddich was managed by just 120£. That is the cost of building the distillery in 1886.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
