Glenfiddich 40 Year Old Scotch Whisky is an exemplary single malt made from marrying 40 year old vattings to craft a peerless whisky. Infinite depth and layer upon layer of aroma and flavor create a 40 year old unrivalled by other rare whiskies of this age. Best enjoyed neat, on the rocks, with a splash of water, or with club soda to expand the flavor. For over 130 years Glenfiddich has been one of the few single malt distilleries to remain entirely family owned and our whisky has become the world's most awarded single malt Scotch whisky, a true reflection of the passion, integrity and innovative spirit championed by a traditional fermentation process that has been passed down through the generations. Our 40 Year Old is not only precious but also pioneering. Our Malt Master carefully hand selects individual casks before marrying them together with what was left over from the previous 40 Year Old vatting. This continuous process is known as "remnant vatting" and contains whiskies that are at the very least, 40 years old. We are the only single malt Scotch whisky in the industry to use remnant vatting. Glenfiddich was founded by William Grant to fulfil a lifelong ambition of creating the 'best dram in the valley' and named 'Valley of the Deer' in Gaelic. Skillfully crafted. Enjoy responsibly.

Tasting Notes

Beautifully rich and aromatic with layer upon layer of dried fruits, dark chocolate, roasted coffee and ripe black cherries. Occasional wafts of gentle wood smoke, polished leather and cloves.

Distillery Information

The Glenfiddich distillery produce the Glenfiddich whisky in Dufftown, Moray.
Exemplifying our family's tradition of innovation, our 15 Year Old expression is created using a technique pioneered by our Malt Master and its warm, spicy flavours are transformed with the alchemy of the Solera Vat.
A higher strength single malt Scotch whisky, crafted with our century-old traditions. After at least 15 years maturing in traditional American oak and Spanish oak, it is non-chill filtered to protect its subtle flavours. Unique floral and peppery notes are released and a sweet, velvet, warm finish.
Immensely popular Glenfiddich variant. Using a Solera system common in the maturation of quality sherry, 15yo malt from three different types of casks is married together in a wooden vat, which is constantly topped up to ensure the quality is maintained.
The firm is still wholly owned by the Grant family (now in its fifth generation), and has expanded to include three more malt distilleries [Balvenie, Kininvie and Ailsa Bay], a grain plant [Girvan] and other brands such as Monkey Shoulder and Hendrick's gin.
Glenfiddich is Scotland's best-known and most successful distillery. It is located in the heart of Speyside, in Dufftown to be precise. Also known as "The Giant", it has an impressive annual production capacity of 21 million litres.
Glenfiddich's 15 yo is created using a technique pioneered by their Malt Master. Aged in European oak sherry casks and new oak casks, the whisky is then mellowed in a Solera Vat.
