Glenfiddich The Original Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
William Grant & Sons has released a reproduction of its original 1963 single malt as a tribute to its founders, Sandy and Charles Grant Gordon. In flavour and looks, ‘The Original’ is meant as a close reproduction of the Glenfiddich Straight Malt, the first single malt whisky to bring single malts out of obscurity.
Created by malt master Brian Kinsman, who nosed and tasted the original liquid and followed the original recipe, the 1963 is described as “light and fruity with hints of Sherry spice from the European oak Sherry butts that were predominantly used in the 1960s”. Kinsman adds: “Glenfiddich has an unrivalled collection of rare and aged single malts from which we can draw on to create innovative whiskies. Using this collection we were able to replicate the original Glenfiddich Straight Malt. Glenfiddich The Original is a true taste of history.”
