General Info
Glenfiddich is the most famous whisky distillery and brand in the world. The distillery is located on the outskirts of the town of Dufftown in the Speyside region. The name is taken from the Glen Fiddich Valley where it lies and means 'valley of the deer' in Gaelic. This explains the origin of Glenfiddich's famous stag logo. The water needed for production is taken from the Robbie Dhu springs, which flow in to the River Fiddich. The site has grown to be massive so as to meet the worldwide demand for their spirit. It has a capacity of 10 million litres per year, making it Scotland's largest distillery, and has a staggering 29 stills, 45 warehouses for maturation and its own cooperage, coppersmith and bottling centre. Much of Glenfiddich's world domination of the single malt market is due to their innovation. Glenfiddich was the first distillery to consistently bring single malt whisky to the international market in the early 1960s, the first single malt to be sold in a travel retail shop at an airport in 1963, the first to open a visitor centre to the public in 1969 and the first single malt to sell over 500,000 cases of whisky in a calendar year. Following early successes, other distilleries followed Glenfiddich's strategies. Now, Glenfiddich is sold in nearly 200 countries and accounts for nearly 35% of all single malt sales in the world. Candied fruits, spicy, toffee, ginger, sherry, syrupy on the palate. Finish is of peels, spices, sherry, sweet ginger, touch of salted toffee.
