Glenfiddich 1974 Vintage Reserve #38231 / Fenton Tower
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.
Although bearing the label of the Vintage Reserve collection, this was actually the first ever Private Vintage bottling from Glenfiddich, a selection of single cask bottlings produced between 2001 and 2008. Each cask was exclusively selected for and bottled for a variety of private parties and whisky retailers.
Cask #38231 had been donated to charity by Sandy Grant Gordon in his capacity as patron for the Museum of Scotland in the US. It was then purchased at auction by Ian Simpson and John Macaskill of Fenton Tower, a hotel in North Berwick, East Lothian.
One of 231.
