Glenfiddish, Master of Malt Team Up for New Whisky Tasting Collection


April 20, 2021

Glenfiddich has teamed up with online retailer Master of Malt for a limited edition tasting collection.

The collection features five unique single malt whiskys from Glenfiddich, four from the distillery’s signature range and one a previously unreleased expression. Each of the tastes is packaged in a wax-sealed, 30ml dram.

The five expressions include Glenfiddich’s brand new expression, Grande Couronne 26 Year Old, recently in the UK; two expressions from the Glenfiddich Grand Series: the well-loved Glenfiddich Grand Cru 23 Year Old, initially aged in American and European oak casks and rare French cuvée oak casks; Glenfiddich Gran Reserva, first matured for a lengthy 21 years in ex-bourbon casks before being moved to ex-Caribbean rum casks for four months; and the bourbon- and sherry-matured Glenfiddich 18 Year Old and Glenfiddich Virgin Oak 2010. 

Each set also includes dial-in details for a series of virtual live tastings. Hosted by Glenfiddich global brand ambassador Struan Grant Ralph, these will take place at 8pm BST on April 22, and 29, giving customers the opportunity to discover more about Glenfiddich and the five whiskies. 

“We are really excited to launch this new Tasting Collection with Master of Malt to continue to make whisky more approachable and accessible,” Ralph said in a news release. “Being able to lead people on a journey through some of Glenfiddich’s all-time favourites – not to mention highly sought-after and opulent new additions – and showcase a true taste of excellence with each dram is a real privilege.”

“It’s always exciting to work with family-owned distillers like Glenfiddich, and they have really let us have access to some of their tastiest recent drops with this pack. We’d rather share a dram in person, but to have Struan take us through them online over the coming weeks is a pretty decent second,” added Guy Hodcroft, spirits buyer at Master of Malt.
