In 2011, Glenfiddich was the first single malt to sell more than one million cases in a year, but despite its huge scale, the attention to detail and years of experience has ensured that its flagship 12-year-old whisky is the world’s biggest-selling single malt. The distillery was established in 1887 by William Grant and is still family run to this day.
Brian started as a whisky chemist at the company in 1997, but his keen nosing ability led to him becoming malt master David Stewart’s apprentice. After years of training, Brian took over from David and is now responsible not only for Glenfiddich’s single malts, but also the rest of the Grant’s range of single malts and blended whiskies.
In this masterclass, Brian will take us on an exploration of some of Glenfiddich’s most innovative expressions and will explain how the distillery remains at the forefront of the industry. Along with the ground-breaking 15yo Solera and 26yo Excellence, and the serendipitous Snow Phoenix, we will get to try The Original, a recreation of the original 1963 recipe for Glenfiddich Straight Malt, and two unreleased cask samples.
An essential masterclass for all Glenfiddich fans.
