Any important date can be identified in the progress of humanity in the last 125 years, Glenfiddich was present: not by chance, time has always been one of the fundamental values put in place by the production practices of the distillery - family owned from the foundation to today - with its motto 'every year counts'. With the first drop of distillate produced on Christmas 1887 in the Glen of Fiddich (Valle del Cervo in Gaelic) with the ambition to produce 'the best dram in the valley', the iconic Dufftown distillery with 24 washbacks, 28 pot stills and a stock of over 800,000 barrels has made of its pioneering spirit an absolute workhorse. Remained at the end of the 1920s and at the end of Prohibition in the USA, one of the six distilleries active in Scotland, Glenfiddich embraced a new period of growth in the demand for the category taking on for the first time of the ramai masters who took care of maintenance full time of family stills; it was Glenfiddich the first whiskey to adopt the distinctive triangular bottle in 1961 with a design by Hand Schleger and it was always Glenfiddich the first Scotch Whiskey to bear the name of Single Malt, in export outside the United Kingdom, in fact founding the category at dawn of 1963. With the bottling in 1991 and 2009 of 50 bottles of a single malt aged 50 years and with the release in 2001 of 61 bottles from a cask of 1937 in honor of the last of ten generations of ' Warehousemen 'approached over time, Glenfiddich has shown attention in celebrating the years of aging of its whiskey and the depth of its stock of barrels. The years of experience as independent producers make Glenfiddich a point of reference from the point of view of the range, combining traditional maturation with innovative finishes. For this reason, today Glenfiddich is the single most sold single malt in the world (1,000,000 cases in 2008).
