Two years ago, our friends at American Photo released an expansive, four-part oral history of the September 11 attacks, told through the eyes and lenses of the photographers who documented the day. "This taxi driver was looking over my shoulder and started screaming, 'He's got it,'" one photographer says about capturing the moment the second plane hit. "As if that mattered. As if what happened in front of us wasn't real until it was actually captured." You can read all four parts here.
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.
