Glenfiddich was founded by William Grant who had learned his craft at Mortlach and the first spirit ran from the stills on Christmas Day 1887.

Glenfiddich is also credited with creating the world's interest in single malt whisky with the launch of the Straight Malt in 1963. Still family owned, it was the first single malt brand to sell 1 million cases in a year.

The story goes that when this bottling was released it caused a stir in the US markets due to the associations with the dreaded Cuba that its label implied.

This led to its name being changed on later batches to 'Caribbean Rum Finish' and later to 'Gran Reserva ', then it was altered once more to become 'Reserva Rum Finish'... whichever way you cut it, it's a 21 year old finished in rum casks!

Age: 21 Years Old
