The new trio from the Glenfiddich Grand Series is an expression of luxury and tradition

In true maverick spirit, Glenfiddich, the world’s most awarded single malt scotch whisky pushes the status quo, with the launch of its newest range, the Glenfiddich Grand Series. This range is a beautifully disruptive series of single malts that oozes opulence and is designed to elevate occasions and celebratory moments in a whole new way. Gran Reserva, Grand Cru, and Grande Couronne; each imbued with intriguing and indulgent finishes. An unexpected marriage of luxury and tradition, the Grand Series is the embodiment of elevated luxury, and opulence and promises pleasure with every sip, to elevate your most special occasions.

Adding an indulgent finishing touch to any event, the Gran Reserva transforms the common into the unequaled. A toast to personal triumphs in barefoot luxurious fashion, savor the very best of Scotland and the Caribbean with golden hour in a bottle. Mellowed for 21 years in meticulously selected American and European oak casks and finished for six months in Caribbean rum casks, the liquid builds to a crescendo of sweet toffee and spicy exotic warmth. Encased in a vibrant, deep amber packaging and reminiscent of the warm hues of beach sunsets complete with Caribbean-inspired illustrations, the Gran Reserva is a blend of tradition and rebellion.

The Grand Cru is as far from ordinary as whiskies come. Daring and unexpected, this is an expression that redefines moments of celebration with true luxury and elegance. Matured for 23 years in hand-selected oak casks, the exceptional liquid is finished in rare French cuvée casks for six months – the first and only Glenfiddich expression to be finished in such casks. Corked in a bottle of black glass embellished with gold foil, its lavish exterior offers hints of the indulgence that awaits. A true testament to craftsmanship, this masterpiece of whisky-making exudes elegance on the nose while bringing sophisticated richness to the palate; an impeccable accessory for any social event of the season.

The crowning glory to any occasion and the epitome of true opulence is the Grande Couronne. Its very name, which means crown in French, seals the promise of the pleasure to come, the pinnacle of the night’s revelry. Setting the stage for an unforgettable festivity, this rich and regal whisky is aged for 26 years before receiving an extended finish of up to two years in rare French cognac casks, painstakingly sourced in limited quantities. Unveiling exquisite layers of sweet toasted oak and velvety aromas, the Grande Couronne is the piece de resistance of the Glenfiddich Grand Series. Secured with a 26-sided gold closure and adorned with gold filigree, each bottle holds the key to unparalleled magnificence, nestled in beautiful packaging embellished with fresco artwork. Designed to impress on the most important of occasions, the Grand Couronne is single malt ascended.

“At Glenfiddich, we believe that grand occasions deserve grand celebrations. Combining a time-honored vision with the maverick spirit and determination to blaze new trails, the Glenfiddich Grand Series is a celebration of the extraordinary. From unexpected cask finishes of Caribbean rum to French cuvée and cognac casks, the Grand Series showcases our ability to experiment with aged liquid and intriguing finishes – bringing together luxury and traditional worlds in an unexpected marriage and elevating ordinary occasions to offer a true taste of opulence,” says the Southeast Asia brand ambassador for Glenfiddich, Brett Bayly.
