Aged in European oak sherry casks and new oak casks, the whisky is mellowed in a unique Solera Vat, a large oak tun inspired by the sherry bodegas of Spain and Portugal.

Never emptied, and kept half full of whiskies since 1998, the Solera Vat is the culmination of curious minds and the pioneering spirit of the Glenfiddich family. It’s also the secret behind this whisky becoming the first 15 year old expression to enter the top ten bestselling single malts.

Winner of a Silver Medal in 2014 from International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC)

The nose boasts flavours of citrus, dry wood and sherry. Followed by a plate of sweet spice and fruitcake leading into a oaky finish.

Country Of Origin: Scotland

Few men have built their own distillery with their own bare hands. But that's exactly how William Grant started writing his story. For 20 years William Grant nurtured a dream to make the "best dram in the valley". 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 the distillery 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 the William Grant's innovative nature, passed down through the generations.

Using many of the same methods for 125 years, a mixture of specially-sourced barley, ground down and added to Robbie Dhu springwater, is heated to 64 degrees C. The porridge-like "mash" turns to sugar, dissolving into a fine sweet, tangy liquid called wort. The wort is drained, cooled and passed into Wash Backs, where yeast is added and fermentation begins.

The wash is heated and condensed in copper Wash Stills for its first distillation, and a second time in Spirit Stills. Robbie Dhu spring water is added to the newly distilled spirit at 63.5% alcohol and it is then stored in the finest American oak and Spanish Oloroso oak casks in the Glenfiddich Warehouses, breathing in Highland air, waiting patiently until primed for bottling.
