Dufftown, Banffshire. Licentiehouder en eigenaar: William Grant & Sons Ltd.
William Grant (1839 - 1923) leerde de kunst van het distilleren te Mortlach, waar hij twintig jaar werkte voor £ 200 per jaar.
Al die jaren spaarde hij, tot hij geld genoeg had om zijn eigen distilleerderij te beginnen.
Hij koos een stuk grond uit bij Dufftown, Glenfiddich genaamd, wat dal van de herten betekent.
Er was veel en goed water voorhanden van de Robbie Dubh bron.
Zijn ketels kocht hij tweedehands van Cardhu voor £ 120 en de eerste whisky kwam op eerste kerstdag 1887 uit de ketels.
Grant, zijn vrouw en negen kinderen werkten allemaal mee in de distilleerderij.
De whisky werd verkocht als zijnde goed voor medische doeleinden, elk onderdeel van het proces in de distilleerderij stond onder dokter's toezicht. Dit hield in dat Alex, de vierde zoon medicijnen studeerde, maar ook in de distilleerderij werkte.
De eerste grote klapper voor Glenfiddich kwam toen The Glenlivet grotendeels door brand werd verwoest en een grote order niet uit kon voeren.
William Grant begon toen een tweede distilleerderij: The Balvenie.
Het bankroet van de Pattison's in 1898 trof veel distillateurs, het antwoord van Grant op de problemen was, alles in eigen hand houden, zelf blenden en zelf ook verkopen.
Hij stuurde zijn zwager Charles Gordon naar Engeland om een kantoor op te zetten te Blackburn, Dit was geen succes, na 503 zakelijke bezoeken had hij één kist Glenfiddich verkocht!
Maar Grant ging door en binnen tien jaar had hij vertegenwoordigingen in meer dan dertig landen.
In de jaren dertig werd, tegen de trend in, de produktie opgevoerd, in de verwachting dat na beëindiging van de drooglegging in de VErenigde Staten, er weer meer afzet zou komen.
Glenfiddich is één van de grootste distilleerderijen van Schotland met dertig ketels, al-lem replica's van de eerste ketel die werd gekocht van Cardhu.
De Mash tun is  12 ton.
De 24 Wash backs hebben elk een inhoud van 60.000 liter.
De 10 Wash stills zijn elk groot 9100 liter, de twintig Spirit stills zijn elk 4550 liter groot.
Vijftien ketels worden met kolen gestookt, twee verhit met stoom en dertien worden met gas verhit, maar kunnen ook met kolen worden gestookt.
De ketels hebben allen een electrisch aangedreven rummagers.
Er is een cooperage, een vatenmakerij en een bottelarij met een kapaciteit van 10,2 miljoen flessen per jaar.
Glenfiddich heeft 40 lagerpakhuizen met ongeveer 100 miljoen liter whisky. 10 % van de vaten zijn gebruikte sherryvaten.

William Grant & Sons Ltd, komt de eer toe, in een tijd van smaakvervlakking en malaise in de whiskyindustrie, als eerste zijn single malt whisky op grote schaal aktief te gaan pro-moten, dat was in 1963.
De driehoekige fles werd in 1957 geintroduceerd.
William Grant & Sons Ltd bezit ook de graandistilleerderij te Girvan, gebouwd in 1963.
Drie jaar later werd er een malt distilleerderij bijgebouwd, Ladyburn, maar die werd in 1975 gesloten.
In Augustus 1990 opende William Grant ' Sons Ltd, Kininvie, een nieuwe malt whisky dis-tilleerderij in de Speyside, en dat wordt gezien in Schotland als een historische gebeurtenis.
Convalmore wordt gekocht in 1990, maar wordt uitsluitend gebruikt als lagerpakhuis.
Gemiddeld ontvangt Glenfiddich 100.000 gasten per jaar, die worden rondgeleid door 50 gidsen.
Glenfiddich is sponsor van:
Glenfiddich Piping Championship, Glenfiddich Fiddle Championship en Glenfiddich Heavyweight
Qualifying Championship, Tossing the cabre, het gooien van boomstammen.
Voorjaar 1999 kregen de Edrington Group en Highland Distillers verschil van mening over het niet of wel aanhouden van de beursnotering van Highland Distillers.
September 1999 wordt bekend dat Edrington en William Grant & Sons samen Highland Distillers overnemen.
De naam van de nieuwe onderneming luidt: The 1887 Company, wat slaat op het stichtingsjaar van Highland Distillers.
Edrington verkrijgt 70 %-, William Grant & Sons 30 % van de aandelen. Archie, de kat van Glenfiddich sterft op 6 October 2002.
Op 13 Maart 2003, worden een chauffeur en zijn vrachtwagen, geladen met Glenfiddich, Balvenie en Grant's whiskies ontvoerd.



De vrachtwagen stond geparkeerd in de omgeving van Lockerbie. De chauffeur werd negen uur later vrijgelaten in Worchestershire, de vrachtwagen, zonder de whisky, en met een waarde van £ 135.000 werd bij Huil teruggevonden.
September 2007:
Glenfiddich krijgt een nieuwe uitmonstering, de driekante fles blijft.
Nieuwe slogan is "Every Year Counts"




September 2004
Ter viering van de tewaterlating van de Queen Mary 2, van de Cunard Line, brengt Glenfiddich uit één vat gebottelde Glenfiddich uit, exclusief voor passagiers van de Queen Mary 2.
Er wordt ook een Vintage 1972 botteling uitgebracht, van twee vaten, hiervan werden 519 flessen gebotteld.

The Great Warehouse Collapse of 2 0 1 0:

Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix commemorates a moment of drama in the long
History of The Glenfiddich Distillery. It all began in December 2009 when it
started to snow - it kept snowing for several months. After weeks of record
low temperatures and alternate freezing and thawing there were four feet
of densely compacted snow on the distillery roofs.

On the evening of Thursday 7th January, in the most remote part of the snow
covered distillery, some of our warehouse roofs collapsed, ripped open by the
sheer weight of snow, leaving maturing casks of Glenfiddich exposed to the
winter sky. It was as if some of the distillery angels had finished their 'share'
and had come back looking for more.

In all 4 roofs collapsed and several more were badly damaged. The distillery engineers calculated that there were 400 kilograms of snow on every square
metre of warehouse roof - the equivalent of a herd of elephants standing
on top of each warehouse.

The Glenfiddich Distillery team immediately swung into action - working around
the clock to clear snow from the distillery and neighbouring warehouses to
make everything safe. Enduring temperatures as low as - 19o C they could
only work for a few hours in the bitter cold before having to go indoors to thaw
out.

Before the rebuilding of the warehouses could start, all the casks of maturing
Glenfiddich had to be moved to other secure places where they could continue
their maturation undisturbed.

I came to see the warehouses for myself and standing amongst the wreckage
decided to create a special Glenfiddich whisky to mark this moment in the
distillery's history and recognize the fantastic and difficult work carried out by
the distillery team.

To create this whisky I selected the finest casks from the snow damaged ware-
houses - marrying together different ages of mature Glenfiddich - some very
old. Some of these casks had previously held Oloroso sherry and others were
traditional whisky casks made of American oak. Each one was specially chosen
to make a unique contribution to the taste and aroma of the final whisky.

Aside from choosing and marrying these casks, this Glenfiddich is as we found
it:  a marriage of Glenfiddich single malt Scotch whiskies of different ages and finishes with the strength brought to 47.6 % abv by the addition of the distillery's
Robbie Dhu spring water. It has not been chill filtered.

We have called it Snow Phoenix - a great Glenfiddich Single Malt born of chance
and adversity. It is a limited edition, one of a kind and will only be bottled in 2010  


Glenfiddich Anniversary Vintage joins Rare Collection

September 2013




The new edition to Glenfiddich's Rare Collection

William Grant & Sons has released a 125th anniversary edition of its world leading single malt scotch, Glenfiddich.
Glenfiddich Anniversary Vintage, is described as one of the Speyside brand's "rarest whiskies ever released" and numbers only 286 bottles.
The whisky, which falls within the brand's Glenfiddich Rare Collection and is priced at £699, has spent 25 years in a ex-sherry oak barrel.
It is available globally to "whisky connoisseurs and prestigious establishments".
Brian Kinsman, malt master at Glenfiddich said: "Bottled from just one European oak sherry cask and testament to the uniqueness of this exclusive whisky, Glenfiddich Anniversary Vintage has a cask-strength ABV of 55.2%.
"Glenfiddich has been family run since 1887 and with the freedom of independence and the foresight of long term planning, we have created the largest collection of single malt stock anywhere in the world. It allows to us to create exceptional and fantastic tasting whisky."

Company director Peter Gordon said: "It was an honour to select this whisky. Born of two momentous anniversaries for our distillery, this whisky truly reflects the pioneering spirit that has underpinned our 125 year history and my great-great grandfather's legacy of making 'the best dram in the valley'."
Glenfiddich is the world's best selling single malt scotch, with 1.0m 9-litre case sales in 2012

Glenfiddich solera whiskies continue no-age trend

September, 2013
William Grant & Sons has continued the trend of age-statement free single malt scotch with the release of three solera vat whiskies.
The Glenfiddich Cask Collection whiskies - Glenfiddich Select Cask, Glenfiddich Reserve Cask and Glenfiddich Vintage Cask - have been matured in a variety of oak casks and finished in solera tuns.
According to William Grant & Sons, the solera process marries the whisky together for at least two months, until deemed ready by malt master Brian Kinsman.
The solera technique "guarantees the continuity of the whisky's flavour and taste by ensuring that the tun is never less than half full and is constantly replenished", said the spirits company.
Kinsman said: "These latest additions to our no-age range allow us to offer single malt aficionados the best of both worlds - whiskies crafted for their flavour, alongside whiskies bottled by their age."
Glenfiddich Select Cask is described as "an elegant whisky with layers of sweetness, spice and hints of citrus, matured in hand-selected aged bourbon, European oak and red wine casks to impart a beautifully soft taste".
Glenfiddich Reserve Cask is matured in "Spanish sherry casks used for their mellow and rich flavour characteristics" while Glenfiddich Vintage Cask is matured in European oak and American bourbon casks.
Glenfiddich Select Cask and Glenfiddich Reserve Cask will be available as global travel retail exclusives from this month; Glenfiddich Vintage Cask will be available from early 2014.
The full range will be available across all global travel retail outlets from April 2014.

WHISKY distiller William Grant & Sons yesterday toasted record revenues despite the eurozone debt crisis making 2012 a "challenging year" for the family-owned company.
The Dufftown-based firm, which makes Glenfiddich single malt and Grant's blended Scotch, posted a 1.4 per cent rise in full-year revenues to £1.06 billion. Sales first broke through the £1bn barrier in 2011.
Operating profits dipped by 1.2 per cent to £124.8 million after the company invested in increasing its production, refurbishing its visitor centres and gearing up for the construction of a distillery in Ireland.
Cash was also pumped into replacing one of the computer systems used by the group, which also makes the Balvenie single malt and the Monkey Shoulder triple malt.
Stella David, chief executive at William Grant, said: "Whilst 2012 saw some difficult global economic conditions, the company continued to perform well thanks to the continued success of our premium spirits brands and our consistent focus on building brand equity and investing for the long term."
Last year saw the launch of the first television advertisements for the company's Sailor Jerry spiced rum brand, while its Hendrick's label "continues to lead the super-premium gin segment with rapid value growth across all regions".
William Grant & Sons, which is owned by the Gordon and Grant families, said that it had also invested in its other spirit brands, including Reyka vodka, Solerno blood orange liqueur and Milagro tequila.
Work began a couple of weeks ago on the construction of the new £29m Tullamore distillery at Clonminch, Co Offaly.
Irish agriculture minister Simon Coveney broke open a cask of Tullamore whiskey to mark the first sod being turned at the site, which will bring production back to Clonminch for the first time since 1954.
William Grant & Sons bought Tullamore in 2010 as part of its €300m (£250m) takeover of C&C Group's spirits business, a year after the Dublin-based drinks group bought Tennent's and its Wellpark brewery in Glasgow from InBev for £180m.
Glenfiddich marked the 125th anniversary last year of the opening of its distillery by filling 11 bottles to celebrate the life of Janet Sheed Roberts, the grand-daughter of the company's founder, William Grant. Roberts died last year aged 110.
The bottles raised more than £400,000 for a group of charities after going under the hammer at various auctions.
Balvenie held a "fête" in Edinburgh's St Andrew Square last week, featuring tastings with its UK ambassador, Andrew Forrester, cooperage displays and chocolate and whisky tasting workshops with Nadia Ellingham, who runs the Thinking Chocolate shop in Edinburgh.
William Grant & Sons' figures come amid a flurry of rising revenues in the spirits industry, as demand for whisky soars in Asia and the United States.

William Grant & Sons to expand Glenfiddich distillery


03 December, 2015




 


William Grant & Sons has announced plans to increase the capacity of its Glenfiddich distillery in Speyside, Scotland.


The company says the planning application for the multi-million pound expansion has been given the stamp of approval from Moray Council.

Enda O’Sullivan, global brand director of Glenfiddich, said: “As a family owned business it is in our DNA to protect the future and think in the long term. This means managing our stock profile carefully and leading the category through innovation and creativity.

“The expansion plans enable us to help meet these objectives. We are delighted that the plans have been approved and that we can continue to meet the needs of our discerning drinkers all over the world long, long into the future.”

Glenfiddich is Gaelic for valley of the deers.
