Glenfiddich may be the world’s most recognized single malt Scotch whiskey, but that doesn’t mean they sit on their peaty laurels. It is 9 A.M. and Ian Millar, Glenfiddich’s Brand Ambassador, is contemplating breakfast items that might match the malts he is about to pour for tasting. There are the 12, 15, 18 and 21 year old whiskeys, and a surprise visitor, the rare 1975 bottling.
It was not so long ago that Glenfiddich was the only single malt available in North America in any volume. It was followed by Glenlivet, and soon a plethora of offerings arrived. But The Glenfiddich has retained pride of place as the world’s leading single malt brand, through hard work and an almost adventurous program at the distillery.
