Glenfiddich 1937 Rare Collection 64 Year Old

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 actively 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 Rare Collection from Glenfiddich was first introduced in the early 2000s and included a sought-after annual batch release of 40 year old single malt, as well as this 1937 vintage, genuinely one of the world's rarest bottles of single malt. Given that this cask was already 26 years old before the distillery made the decision to market a single malt brand, it is perhaps truly fortuitous that this was allowed to obtain such an advanced age. Or it may be simply testament to its quality that it was deemed to great to be used for any other purpose. Cask #843 was distilled in the same year that King George VI was crowned, and was bottled after a long 64 years of maturation.

When the time came for bottling, the cask produced just 61 full size bottles, and around 500 presentation packs containing 10ml samples.
