William Grant & Sons launches exclusive Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Collection gift pack
Glenfiddich, the world’s most awarded single malt Scotch whisky, has unveiled the Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Collection gift pack, offering global travelers an exclusive chance to experience a range of three pioneering 19 Year Old whiskies.
The innovative Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Collection celebrates the remarkable pioneering spirit of early adventurers; those who made extraordinary journeys that revolutionised our understanding of the world, and still exhilarate us today. The beautifully presented gift box is made up of three individual 20cl bottles containing Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Madeira Cask Finish; Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Bourbon Cask Reserve; and Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Red Wine Cask Finish, making this an ideal gift for the discerning drinker, keen to expand on their whisky-tasting adventures.
Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Madeira Cask Finish celebrates the adventurous spirit of 15th century Portuguese explorers who discovered the islands of Porto Santo and Madeira, reinterpreting our geographical understanding of the world. This whisky marks a series of firsts, being not only the first 19 Year Old Glenfiddich, but the first to be finished in Madeira casks and the first release in the Glenfiddich Age of Discovery range.
Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Bourbon Cask Reserve is inspired by the great American rivers that brought commerce and industry to the cities in the South during the 19th century whisky industry boom. It is a rich and velvety single malt Scotch whisky completely matured in traditional American Bourbon casks.
Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Red Wine Cask Finish pays homage to Charles Darwin’s legendary voyage upon the HMS Beagle to South America in 1831. An adventurous whisky bursting with flavour, it is finished in casks which previously housed full bodied red wines produced in South America, marking another Glenfiddich milestone.
Brian Kinsman, Glenfiddich Malt Master, commented: “This range celebrates the discoveries and explorations of the most determined voyagers who have shaped history. At Glenfiddich, since the first spirit flowed from our stills over 125 years ago, we have strived to be pioneering in our whisky-making. Symbolising many firsts for our distillery, the rich and delicious whiskies in the Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Collection gift pack make it an excellent choice for the malt connoisseur keen to explore all three expressions.”
The three 20cl bottles are displayed in a striking, premium gift box featuring the maps that chart the pioneering journeys which have inspired each of the whiskies in the Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Collection. The exclusive, beautifully designed packaging makes this a truly unique present.
Testament to the exquisiteness of these whiskies and Glenfiddich’s position as the world’s most awarded single malt Scotch Whisky, each whisky from the range has won a host of awards. Most recently both Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Madeira Cask Finish and Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Bourbon Cask Reserve were awarded gold medals at the 2013 Scotch Whisky Masters and the International Spirits Challenge. Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Bourbon Cask Reserve was also named Best Speyside Single Malt (13-20 years) at the World Whiskies Awards.
The Glenfiddich Age of Discovery Collection gift pack is available from October exclusively in global travel retail outlets and at The Glenfiddich Distillery.
