The story around the building of Glenfiddich has the air of a Victorian fairy tale.
It was in 1886 that William Grant of Dufftown decided to leave his position as manager of Mortlach and start up on his own. He had saved assiduously and, fortuitously, was starting his project just as Elizabeth Cumming was revamping Cardhu and replacing her old small stills. Along with his wife and nine children, William built his distillery near to the Fiddich river by hand.
The first new make trickled from the stills Christmas Day, 1887.
Around the mid to late 1800’s more distilleries were founded in the area but not all managed to succeeded in the way Glenfiddich did and indeed still does, with a mass influx of brokers offering to bankroll the boom it’s no surprise so many failed, it was the determination and tenacity of William with his passion for whisky above all else that made the distillery thrive.
Whenever we try a glass of Glenfiddich we are drinking a piece of history.
Today, Glenfiddich remains the world’s best-selling single malt with sales more than a million cases a year.
The range has expanded to cover more ages and cask styles than ever before with incredible tastes from each vintage and style.
