Glenfiddich The Original is a single malt Scotch whisky inspired by a previous release from the legendary distillery – the 1963 Glenfiddich Straight Malt, the expression which Sandy Grant Gordon introduced the world to. Glenfiddich The Original was created by Malt Master Brian Kinsman, recreating the flavour profile of the 1963 Glenfiddich Straight Malt with help from the original recipe book from their 4th Malt Master, Hamish Robertson.
Poached pear, oatcakes and golden malt. Oak-y spice.
Vanilla, orange peels and notes of crumbly digestive biscuits.

Glenfiddich The Original is a new limited edition based on Hamish Robertson’s 1963 Glenfiddich Straight Malt release, considered to be the world’s first single malt. Of course whisky had already been bottled as a single malt before, but it was never marketed as such. Back then straight malt was used to set it apart from blended whisky. Later this became pure malt and now everyone is limited to single malt.
When the Glenfiddich Straight Malt was released in 1963, it was reportedly made from a base of 8yo whisky, vatted together with some 12yo and 13yo casks. Although this made it an 8 year-old, there was no age statement on the label at first.
