First-fill American oak bourbon barrels gives this single malt its distinctive character
In 1886, with the help of his seven sons and two daughters, William Grant set out to fulfill a lifelong ambition. Together they began building his distillery by hand, and on Christmas Day of 1887, the first drop flowed from the copper stills. Today, Glenfiddich remains independently owned by the fifth generation of the same family. Each generation is driven by both their forefather's vision to craft the finest malt in Speyside and the legacy that they will bestow on future generations.
