Like a beautiful woman, we don’t really mind if a gorgeous Whisky claims to be a bit younger than it actually is… with Whisky that is a rare virtue. 

Founded in 1887, with machinery bought from the Cardhu Distillery, William Grant created Glenfiddich. Still in the hands of the Grant family, Glenfiddich is the biggest selling malt Whisky worldwide and remains Scottish owned and independent. William Grant pioneered their Whiskies as "single malts" at a time when malts were produced to supply the blended Whisky producers. It's a vision that has paid off, thanks for creating the category Mr. Grant!
 
If you do not know about Glenfiddich, you are not a Whisky lover. Not only are they a "top-two" producer, of premium single-malt loveliness, they are the much honored and loved Speyside of choice for many. But let’s cut to the chase. Glenfiddich 15-year Solera Method is all about the "method" part… and a wondrous method it is too. 
 
The Solera method is a long line of casks, where each year a portion of the Whisky in the first cask is moved to the second, and a portion of the second is moved to the third, and so on. No cask is ever emptied. The only thing that is bottled is the portion from the last cask. So there is always a bit of REALLY old Whisky in that final cask that gets intermingled. But...
 
Since Glenfiddich 15-year Solera is a date-stamped Whisky, and since — by law — all Whisky that is dated must carry the date of the "youngest" Whisky in the bottle, this means that the average age of this lovely little dram is FAR older than 15 years. So, though she claims to be 15, but we know the truth, and the truth is sweet indeed. 
 

SmartAss Corner:
The Solera method began with Madeira and Sherry wines and balsamic vinegars. In Sicily, the process is called "perpetua."

Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Continuous mashing is firstly used by Glenfiddich in the Whisky market.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
This massive success of Glenfiddich was managed by just 120£. That is the cost of building the distillery in 1886.
