Our Craftsmen 2 Resize

by David Allardice, Glenfiddich Ambassador

In 1886, William Grant founded our distillery in Dufftown with the singular goal in mind—to create the best dram in the valley. Today, over a century later, Glenfiddich is now recognized as the best-selling single malt in the world. In my previous post, I introduced you to some of the key craftspeople responsible for maintaining the spirit that is William Grant’s legacy. Today I’ll take you inside our cooperage and warehouse to meet three more individuals who work diligently to preserve the integrity of William Grant’s dream and the World’s Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

Our Craftsmen – Tradition and Innovation (Part 1)

29 April 2013

by David Allardice, Glenfiddich Ambassador


Over 125 years ago, William Grant set out to build the Glenfiddich distillery by hand with the help of his seven sons, two daughters and a local stonemason. Today, as one of the few remaining family-owned distilleries in Scotland, we still make our whisky on that very same site. Our highly skilled and dedicated team in Dufftown has won many awards over the years, including the honor of being recently named Whisky Advocate’s 19th Annual “Distiller of the Year.”

I recently got in touch with some of the key craftsmen in Dufftown to further explore how the William Grant family tradition of innovation is alive and well at Glenfiddich. I’ll introduce you to three of them today.

In each location I hosted a tasting session, single malt master class and a bespoke gourmet dinner where dishes inspired by local cuisine were paired with rare Glenfiddich Malts. I am a great food lover, so didn’t need to be asked twice when the opportunity to do the trip came up!
