Life as a Glenfiddich family member

1 November 2014

Glenfiddich has been a family business since William Grant laid the very first stones on the site of our distillery with the help of his seven sons and two daughters back in 1886. To this day, William’s descendants continue to own and manage our distillery, looking after our whisky and leading the way for future generations to come.

Following in William’s footsteps is fifth generation Grant family member Kirsten Grant Meikle, who took some time to talk to us about what family means to her and, of course, the difference it makes to the way we produce our award winning single malt.

Ways to enjoy a summer dram

30 July 2014

During the summer months, I meet people who don't touch their precious single malts at all. Sometimes it's because they see whisky as a winter drink, other times it's because they say their single malt is sacred, that it should never be mixed with anything, or even served with ice.
