World’s Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Small Batch Reserve
Carefully matures for 18 years in the finest Oloroso sherry and bourbon casks built by our own expert coopers. These casks are then nurtured in small batches for a further three months, for a remarkable deep, rich and complex flavour.
Nurtured in Small Batches
After our whisky has spent 18 years patiently maturing in the finest Oloroso sherry and bourbon oak casks, Brian Kinsman, our pioneering Malt Master, personally hand-selects just 150 exceptional casks, marrying these remarkably small batches together in large wooden runs.
Nurtured for a further three months, each of these individually numbered batches adds an unrivalled and award-winning richness, complexity and depth.
Our Award-Winning Style
The Glenfiddich 18 Year Old is the perfect example of our signature style, one that’s made us the world’s most awarded single malt. Rich baked apple and cinnamon spice complemented by robust oak notes that have deepened and mellowed over time.
Family Run Since 1887
William Grant, who founded and ran our distillery from 1887, passed down the importance of wood for making our malt. His great grandson, Charles Gordon, expanded our cooperage in 1959 – a foresight which means the quality of our oak casks will always meet his exacting standards.
