Finding inspiration at our Distillery

27 September 2013

By Andy Fairgrieve, AIR Co-ordinator

Anyone who has ever visited us in Dufftown knows that we’re lucky enough to live and work in an incredibly beautiful, inspiring corner of Scotland. But not only is it the perfect place for creating exceptional single malt whiskies, it’s also an ideal spot to create compelling works of art. 

For the past twelve years the Glenfiddich Distillery has been quietly building on its reputation for being a home to the creative spirit through our Artists in Residence programme..

Welcoming our Artists in Residence

21 July 2013

By Ian Millar

This past week saw me spend some time with our Artists in Residence, as I do every year. Now in its 12th year, the program is one of the most exciting and unique things we do outside of whisky making. Every summer, we host established and up-and-coming artists from across the Globe at our Distillery for the summer. At the end of the residency, they leave behind some of the art they create – in fact, next time you visit us, be on the look out in the grounds, we often like to display our artists’ work for all to see.

20 July 2013

by Mitch Bechard, Glenfiddich Ambassador

In recent years there has been a shift in the role of Scotch whisky behind the bar. What was once an enigma to the bartender is now something they embrace and constantly strive to expand their knowledge on. Drinks now feature not only Scotch whisky but also American, Japanese and Irish.

A day in the life of a Glenfiddich Mashman

What's a typical day like as a Mashman?

No two days are ever the same here at the Distillery, so it’s hard to describe a typical day, but a large part of my role is of course managing the process of turning malted barely into wort, and then wash. The mash tuns play a big part in the process – hence ‘Mashman’.
