Glenfiddich 2009 The Cooper's Cask 12 Year Old / Spirit of Speyside 2022
The Cooper's Cask was a very special release and the result of a cask strength micro-vatting of three American oak casks, hand-crafted by former Glenfiddich Head Cooper, Ian MacDonald. The casks were crafted using three types of wood: American oak, virgin American oak and ex-Bourbon oak, and were an experiment conducted by MacDonald into how the unique assembly would affect the final flavour of the whisky. These casks, #62463-62465, were filled on 15th December 2009 and specially selected for the Spirit of Speyside 2022 Edition by Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, who has hand-signed each of the individually numbered bottles.
This release was originally exclusively offered through Whisky Auctioneer in partnership with Glenfiddich, with all proceeds donated to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
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.
