About This Product

50 years ago

A working Scottish distillery opening its doors to the public? Obvious now, but it was a brave and visionary move in the 1960s; one our founding family knew would have whisky lovers flocking.

“The Valley of The Deer” in Speyside, Scotland, is where William Grant, Glenfiddich’s visionary founder, turned his dreams into reality in 1887 by hand-building the distillery with the help of his seven sons and two daughters in a single year.

In the summer of 1969, under the stewardship of Charles and Sandy Gordon, William’s great grandsons, Glenfiddich opened the doors of its Visitor Centre, the first of its kind.

David Grant, the grandson of William and cousin of Charles and Sandy, said: “Today, people can’t conceive how difficult it was in the 1960s to launch not just a malt whisky to the world, but the whole concept of single malt whisky. Our visitor centre was at the forefront of our effort and our most successful weapon. The decision to create it and invest our resources in people and money, was a stroke of brilliance. This visitor centre and the team running it were our most important and effective marketing weapon in the creation of the global brand which Glenfiddich has become.”

Since Janet Roberts, granddaughter of our founder, cut the ribbon on 5th July 1969, over 5 million people from over 120 countries have travelled to see where the world’s most awarded single malt Scotch whisky is made.

Focus magazine reported on the pioneering visitor centre in late 1969. “A coach party, the third that day, drove into Glenfiddich distillery, with a party of forty overseas visitors eager to take a look at whisky in the making. They were met by one of seven professional guides employed by William Grant & Sons, to cope with the flood of visitors to Glenfiddich, now running at several thousand per year.

Visitors saw the traditional malting floor, the peat kiln where the fermenting barley is dried before grinding. They saw the fermenting vats made of seasoned timber, and the copper pots stills, like a row of great gleaming kettles. Finally, in the reception centre with its shop, bars and display on the history of whisky, they were given a dram of Highland hospitality.

Like many parties before them in recent times, they had been given a glimpse behind the scenes of malt whisky distilling, the fascinating process responsible for the ancient liquor which is currently on the trend of booming popularity. And no distiller has gone to such lengths to encourage people from all over the world to visit them and laid on such elaborate facilities for their reception.”

July 5th 1969 - 2019

Toasting the success of Glenfiddich straight malt whisky and the new visitors’ reception centre were Mr A. Grant Gordon (Managing Director), Mr Eric Roberts (Chairman), Mrs Janet Roberts, who performed the opening ceremony, and Mr David Grant, the new Glenfiddich brand manager.

The press release issued for the opening proudly states “The centre, a converted malt barn which formed part of the original distillery built in 1886 covers 1600 square feet. It now contains two reception areas, two bars, a gift shop and Grant’s whisky museum. The centre has been designed to cope with a flow of visitors now running at the rate of over 3,000 a year. Visitors from 31 overseas countries have come to Glenfiddich in the last 12 months.”
