Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch Whisky has launched Time Re:Imagined, a collection that includes Glenfiddich 30-Year-Old, 40-Year-Old and 50-Year-Old.
Since the 1960s, only three Glenfiddich Malt Masters have been at the helm of this overseeing the development of these casks.
“In whisky production, we often talk about the role of Malt Masters, and it is our responsibility to find the delicate balance between the taste of the whisky and the intensity of the oak cask,” says Brian Kinsman, Malt Master, Glenfiddich. “But we don’t always acknowledge how each cask, each bottle, is absolutely unique because of the time it has spent maturing. Both nature and time play huge roles in making whisky taste like it does, and Glenfiddich’s Time Re:Imaginedpays homage to this process and the exquisite liquid both time helps to create.”
To create the flavor of the rarest in the collection — the Glenfiddich 50-Year- Old — whiskies from three different American Oak refill casks, all matured in the same warehouse, were married together and finished in an American Oak refill cask for two years. There are only 220 decanters of this expression. “It is an extraordinarily rare and precious liquid, which delivers a superb balance of oak tannin and lingering sweetness,” says David Allardice, U.S. Ambassador, Glenfiddich.
Each expression comes in artistically developed outer packaging.
The Time Re:Imagined Collection is now available in limited quantities in the U.S. at suggested retail prices of $1,299, $4,600 and $50,000 for the Glenfiddich 30-Year-Old, 40-Year-Old, and 50-Year-Old, respectively.
