Glenfiddich 15 Year - Unique Solera Reserve
15.09.20161 Min Read — In General

Our Solera Vat is a single malt innovation that marries whiskies matured in sherry, bourbon and new oak casks. Always kept at least half full, it creates a harmonious whisky that gets richer and more complex every year.


History of the distillery

For 20 years William Grant nurtured a dream to make the ‘best dram in the valley’. With the help of his family, he finally achieved that vision.

In the summer of 1886, with his seven sons and two daughters by his side, William set out to fulfil a lifelong ambition. Together they began building his Distillery by hand, stone by stone. After a single year of work it was ready and William named it Glenfiddich, Gaelic for Valley of the Deer.

William’s passion, determination and pioneering spirit continues to guide us today. Glenfiddich is one of the few single malt distilleries to remain entirely family owned and is now the World's Most Awarded Single Malt* Scotch Whisky, a true reflection of our founder’s innovative nature, passed down through the generations.

Overall

Its easy to drink, not very complex but very flat whiskey. The lager of the whiskey world.
