Glenfiddich Age Of Discovery Red Wine

Glenfiddich

Age Of Discovery
Red Wine Cask Finish

Spicy, rich and smooth with a velvety sweetness.
ABV 40%, 70CL

We created the third expression in our Age of Discovery Collection to commemorate the 1831 voyage of the HMS Beagle. The Beagle travelled around the globe and landed on the east coast of South America, allowing Charles Darwin to collect fossils that would lead to the development of his famous theory of evolution.

Aged 19 years, this edition is finished in oak casks that were once used to produce the complex, velvety wines of South America. The result is an extraordinarily rich single malt with exceptional smoothness, complemented by warm, spicy notes.

Celebrating the spirit of discovery, this expression can be found exclusively in selected Travel Retail outlets.

  • A voyage of discovery

    The HMS Beagle's voyage lasted nearly five years. Darwin spent much of the trip travelling on land to collect specimens of plants, animals and fossils – making long expeditions to the interior of Argentina – now famous as a wine-growing region.

  • Pioneering achievement

    William Grant's pioneering spirit lives on in our Age of Discovery Collection. Our Malt Master has taken our history of celebrating visionary achievement and combined it with our passion for creating exciting, luxurious new expressions.
