Glenfiddich Grand Cru: Whisky meets champagne barrel

With the Glenfiddich Grand Cru, the traditional Scottish company is breaking new ground. This 23-year-old single malt Scotch whisky spent a second maturation phase in French cuvée barrels, which gives it an additional freshness and balance.

Glenfiddich Grand Cru: Whisky meets champagne barrel

After 23 years of ageing in American and European oak barrels, the second ageing in French cuvée barrels gives the Glenfiddich Grrand Cru additional complexity and refinement. The combination of these two worlds has created a whisky that is – thanks to its freshness – accessible to a wider public.

Why not break conventions and toast with this whisky in a Coupe glass to celebrate a success or combine it with a delicious meal? Combined with steak or tartar it tastes especially good as we think.

Tasting of the new Glenfiddich Grand Cru

Looking at the glass, you will face a harmonious dark gold, whilst the taste the freshness – thanks to the French barrel – is clearly recognizable. Tasting reveals aromas such as apple blossoms, lemons, sweet brioche, pear sorbet or white grapes, while the finish is long-lasting and sweet. We can’t wait to pair the Glenfiddich Grand Cru with a cigar!

“This new whisky illustrates Glenfiddich’s passion to push the boundaries of Scotch whisky and look behind the facades of the classic whisky world. Our goal was to create a fresh, new whisky for a wider audience. For this we combined the elegance of fine sparkling wines with the substance and dexterity of single malt whisky. The result is the Glenfiddich Grand Cru – a whisky with the marks of quality and innovation – in the spirit of our founder, breaking with conventions and breaking new ground.” – Brand Ambassador Struan Grant Ralph
