Welcome
to our home

Winter lays snow on hills rising over pagoda roofs. Summer colours local fields barley-gold. All year round spring water bubbles in the glen. As alive as that day in 1886 when our founder William laid the first stones that built one of the oldest family-owned Scotch whisky distilleries. Join us at Glenfiddich, in the Valley of the Deer.

  • WHERE IT STARTED

    As recently as the 1960s people outside Scotland were only used to drinking blended whisky. We were so proud of our single malt, that in 1963 we introduced it to the world and created the single malt category.

  • OPENING OUR DOORS

    Whisky’s tourism industry started right here at our Distillery. Janet Sheed Roberts, our founder’s last grandchild, opened our Distillery doors with the first visitor centre in 1969.

  • FAITHFULLY PRESERVED

    Our whisky-making process hasn’t changed since 1887. We use the same water source, the same unusually shaped stills, and the same high cut point to capture the heart of our distillate. Traditions all laid down by our founder William Grant. To guarantee absolute quality and authenticity.

  • RIVERBED TO ROOFTOP

    The towering rooftops of one of our oldest buildings, the Malt Barn, were built with stones our founder William carried from the bed of the River Fiddich.

  • ONE PRISTINE SOURCE

    We are the only distillery in Scotland to use a single source of water throughout the entire whisky-making process. We use the pure waters of the Robbie Dhu spring, its unique highland tang wrought from millennia of flowing though Banffshire peat and over Scottish granite.

  • SWEET COPPER

    We boil Juniper bushes in all our new stills, a local tradition forgotten by many distilleries. Juniper neutralises the natural sulphur in barley and cleanses the copper until it is ‘sweet’.

  • OUR SIGNATURE

    Specially sourced malted barley, water from the Robbie Dhu spring and fermentation in traditional pine washbacks, all carefully come together to create the fruity notes that define our single malts.
