Glenfiddich Scotch Whisky

Not much has changed at the Glenfiddich Distillery since the first spirit ran from the stills on Christmas Day, 1887. It is still independent; owned and run by the fifth generation of the same family. Their founder, William Grant, aspired to create the "the best dram in the valley". He achieved it, and Glenfiddich maintain it—through a single-minded dedication to craftsmanship and quality throughout every stage of production.

First to widely export whisky, Glenfiddich put Scotch whisky on the map. By 1914 they had 60 agencies abroad; now they are sold in 180 countries on every continent in the world.
