Glenfiddich, the World’s Most Awarded single malt Scotch whisky, unveiled the Glenfiddich Anniversary Vintage, an exclusive 25 Year Old expression, at “Celebrating 125 years of Glenfiddich” in Bangkok. With only 286 bottles released, Glenfiddich Anniversary Vintage is one of the rarest and finest examples of Glenfiddich’s malt making expertise.
Distilled on Christmas Day, 1987, as part of the single malt’s centenary celebrations, this special release marks 125 years of pioneering whisky making at The Glenfiddich Distillery. It was selected on Christmas Day 2012, the distillery’s 125th anniversary, by its founder William Grant’s great-great grandson, Peter Gordon and his son, Dougal. All 286 bottles of Glenfiddich Anniversary Vintage were taken from just one cask, selected by Glenfiddich Malt Master, Brian Kinsman and William Grant’s descendants. Brian Kinsman said, “The whisky’s unusually high ABV of 55.2% signifies the uniqueness of this precious, cask-strength liquid. It is a true connoisseur’s choice and with a host of evocative flavours and subtle aromas it marks another milestone in our pioneering history.”
Five specially numbered bottles of the Glenfiddich Anniversary Vintage retailed for a minimum of USD1,168 in Thailand from 24 to 31 January, 2014 in a silent auction
