Glenfiddich 17 Year Old Rare Collection / LMDW

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 the famous 1937 vintage, genuinely one of the world's rarest bottles of single malt. This incarnation sees the label revised for its single cask series, replacing the Vintage Reserve line during the 2008 rebranding of the distillery's portfolio.

This is actually a small batch bottling, drawn from sherry butt #2702, refill hogshead #3929, bourbon barrel #15285 and second fill sherry butt #29665. The vatting was aged 17 years and selected by the Glenfiddich Malt Master alongside the director of La Maison du Whisky.

One of 250 bottles.
