Makers of the world’s most acclaimed single malt Scotch Whisky invite epicureans to indulge in the Glenfiddich 21-Year-Old Gran Reserva. Raised in Scotland and roused by Caribbean inspiration, the award-winning 21-Year-Old variant comes to South Africa in a rejuvenated new look.
From Glenfiddich’s pioneering family a unique whisky recipe was forged: first by creating their own premium rum and then using the self-same casks to complete the maturation process that leads to an outstanding single malt whisky.
Five generations forward, Glenfiddich uses the maverick formula as a basis for the 21 Year Old’s richness and flavour. In the 21-Year-Old, Glenfiddich whisky is elevated from the great to the extraordinary.
The new look follows a burgundy coloured theme, with an intricately designed filigree pattern on the bottle label and packaging. The bold, vibrant hues of the packaging are an expression of the whisky’s unique flavours. They hint at the luxury, exceptional taste and provenance of the special liquid inside.
Lauren Kuhlmey, Glenfiddich’s Marketing Manager, comments, “The idea to create our own premium rum, just so that we could age a better whisky, is a testament to our pioneering innovation. Our new look is inspired by our unique story and the imagery brings to life our whisky being roused by the Caribbean rum with the sunset of colours evoking both the finishing touch of the rum and its origin. We can’t wait to have this available to our South African consumers.”
Rousing notes of ginger, intense and sweet vanilla, floral, fig, lime, hints of banana, vibrant spicy toffee, new leather and oak.
Initially soft, then brisk, vibrant and drying, peppery, a touch of smoke, oak, lime, ginger and spices.
Very long, warming, dry and spicy
This is a sip that tells you, You Have Arrived.
