You will also visit two of our warehouses where you will explore the generations of gently maturing casks and learn how we achieve depth and consistency of flavour throughout our range of exceptional whiskies.


The special conclusion to this visit is a tutored nosing and tasting of four of our single malts Glenfiddich 12, 14, 15 and 18 Year Old.

Glenfiddich Solera: Deconstructed

This in-depth 2 and half hour visit will allow enthusiasts to discover the true art of whisky making.

Following an introductory video, you will be shown around the distillery and experience the true taste of Glenfiddich, sampling at various stages along the way.

Visiting warehouse 8, home to our unique Solera process, you will discover what makes our 15 year old such an exceptional dram. 
You will then be taken into our Malt Masters Blending room. Here you will enjoy tasting a number of cask strength 15 year old samples and have the unique opportunity to step into our Malt Master Brian Kinsman’s role - preparing your very own version of Glenfiddich 15 year old by combining different cask samples together.  Each guest will be able to bottle a small sample of their own creation to keep.

For this unique experience, we can only welcome a maximum of 8 guests on each tour and therefore ask that you reserve places in advance to avoid disappointment.

William Grant, the founder of Glenfiddich, was born in 1839 in Dufftown. His dream was to build his own distillery and create the best dram in the valley.

The Grant family built The Glenfiddich Distillery with their own hands - the only help they asked for was that of a single stonemason. It took them almost 18 months and the first spirit flowed from the stills on Christmas Day 1887.

Through skill, hard work and determination, the single malt Scotch whisky created by the family turned out to be truly exceptional. The crystal clear water of the Robbie Dhu Springs, the barley, the pure Highland air and the unusually small size of the stills, produced a single malt Scotch whisky which, as William Grant hoped, could not be bettered.

Five generations later, William Grant and Sons Ltd is one of the very few Scotch whisky companies to remain in the hands of the family who founded it. Today, Glenfiddich is made in the same place and in the same way, using the dedicated skills of its own coppersmith and coopers, and still uses the same water source throughout production.

Glenfiddich has grown to become the world’s favourite single malt Scotch whisky - found in homes and bars throughout the world.

William Grant would have been very proud.
