Glenfiddich 1959 Vintage Reserve 40 Year Old #3935 / One of 6 bottles
Glenfiddich was an early advocate of the single malt Scotch category, and their faith is rewarded today by being one of the best-selling Scotch brands in the world. The distillery was built by William Grant in 1886, distilling its first spirit on Christmas day the following year. Today it is still part of the family-owned, William Grant & Sons. They became the first distillery to market their single malt brand in 1963, and were the first to open their facility to visitors. Glenfiddich was an important trailblazer in the whisky industry, who's contribution cannot be forgotten. The scale of their operation today is a testament to this.
The Vintage Reserve collection from Glenfiddich is a selection of single cask bottlings introduced in 1999. They were bottled for the best part of the next decade, eventually being replaced by the revamped Rare Collection line during a rebrand of the distillery portfolio in 2008. The series was bottled from only a few select casks per year and they are highly prized by collectors and connoisseurs alike.
Cask #3959 was distilled in 1959 and aged for 40 years. Incredibly, this is one of only six bottles produced. A incredible rarity, this was produced to celebrate William Grant & Sons’ accolade for International Wine and Spirit Competition Distiller of the Year 1999. It was served at the awards dinner held at The Guildhall, London on 1st November 1999, with three bottles poured at the dinner. This then, is one of only a possible three still in existance.
