Glenfiddich 1972 Private Vintage #16034 / Danish Royal Wedding
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 Private Vintage collection from Glenfiddich is a selection of single cask bottlings, produced between 2001 and 2008. Each release was exclusively selected from a shortlist of 4 to 6 to casks and bottled for a variety of private parties and whisky retailers.
Single cask #16034 was matured until 2004 when it was bottled for the royal wedding of Frederik, Crown Prince of Denmark, and Mary Donaldson.
One of 240 bottles, all of which were sold via a Danish supermarket.
