Speyside Malt Whisky

Best of the best: Voted world's best single malt Scotch whisky, 2003.

This is the world's finest single malt Scotch whisky, according to the panel of 75 international whisky experts who gave Glenfiddich the Gold medal in the 2003 Whisky Magazine independent blind tastings in Edinburgh, Kentucky and Tokyo. The Glenfiddich 40 Year Old Rare Collection is a limited edition of 600 bottles that justifies the time -honoured, unchanged techniques and craftsmanship of the Glenfiddich distillery.

"This malt has matured with elegance," says world-renowned whisky expert Michael Jackson, author of The Malt Whisky Companion. "It is the most urbane Glenfiddich that I have tasted... it tells a story a little at a time, dryly, almost teasingly. It makes such good company that I am reluctant to share it."

ABV 43.6% (first batch); ABV 45.4% (second batch); both 70cl.

Limited edition of 600 bottles; packaged in a hand-made oak box with a brass plaque; bottle label and tasting notes personalised with the bottle number and bottling date; each bottle is signed by Peter Gordon, the great-great-grandson of Glenfiddich distillery founder William Grant; in 2001 it won three awards: Gold Medal - International Spirit Challenge; Silver Medal - International Wine and Sprits Competition; top score (9.5 out of 10), Whisky Magazine.
