Glenfiddich Distillery Releases 15yo “Distillery Edition’


Whisky explorers offered exceptional 51% ABV expression of world’s favourite

The world’s most awarded single malt Scotch whisky, Glenfiddich, has, for the first time, released its 15 Year Old ‘Distillery Edition’ single malt in a handful of selected domestic markets around the world.

The non chill-filtered, Glenfiddich ‘Distillery Edition’ 15 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is bottled at 51% ABV and will appeal to whisky explorers and enthusiasts looking for a characteristically elegant Glenfiddich with a slightly higher strength.  

Commented Glenfiddich’s Malt Master, David Stewart:  “Glenfiddich Distillery Edition is a classic expression of Glenfiddich with a higher strength which adds complexity.  Characteristically, we have married the matured single malts for Distillery Edition in Glenfiddich’s unique oak marrying tuns to ensure a consistently, well-balanced and elegant signature malt.  We have married Glenfiddich single malts in this way for almost 40 years and remain the only single malt distillery to do so.” 

Matured in American and European oak casks, including Oloroso sherry casks, which add to its truly exceptional and distinct character, Glenfiddich ‘Distillery Edition’ boasts a deep, golden barley colour. Its delicate floral aroma is punctuated with hints of freshly ground black pepper and vanilla. Creamily smooth on the palate, these floral and spicy black pepper notes gently mingle with luscious fruit and a hint of sherry wood, lazily lingering to a sweet and warm, velvety finish.  

Glenfiddich Distillery Edition is part of the award-winning range of Glenfiddich single malt Scotch whiskies which also includes Glenfiddich 12 Year Old, 15 Year Old, 18 Year Old, 21 Year Old, 30 Year Old, 40 Year Old, selected Vintage Reserves and the world’s rarest and oldest single malt Scotch, Glenfiddich 1937 Vintage, which was bottled as a 64 year old in 2001.  Only 61 bottles were available and very few remain.
