Glenfiddich launches double-matured whisky

20 January, 2012

William Grant has launched a new expression of its Glenfiddich whisky brand: Glenfiddich Malt Master’s Edition.

The whisky was created to celebrate Glenfiddich’s sixth malt master, Brian Kinsman. It has been double-matured in two different casks – traditional oak and sherry.

Kinsman became Glenfiddich malt master in 2009, having first served an eight year apprenticeship under his predecessor David Stewart.

Kinsman is in charge of the whisky making process; from cask selection to overseeing the marrying of different ages and characters.

The 43%abv whisky is to retail for £49.99. This is Glenfiddich's first double-matured whisky.
