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.
