The Great Whisky & Water Debate

21 July 2015

So, here we are again, a few friends sitting around a table asking that long debated question. When should you add water to whisky?

Before I begin, let’s get something straight. When it comes to whisky, blended, malt or otherwise, there are NO RULES. I hear all sorts of “you must always” or “you should never” in my travels, which make me shiver. The whisky we drink today is rather far removed from its origins, so over time, rituals and rules have been added to create a sense of belonging. You know the rules - you join the club.

Single Malt Whisky As An Investment

22 June 2015

You'd be surprised how much I get asked about whisky investment. It is a hot topic right now and one that is only set to grow and gather momentum as the world turns on to the fact that returns on whisky are far better than any returns from, in the UK's case, any high street bank or building society.

There is also a feeling of 'winning' about it, and not in the Charlie Sheen sense of the term as, like any investment, you are playing a long or short form of gambling.

The Explosive Art Behind Our 21 Year Old Whisky

13 April 2015

Our 21 Year Old whisky is not what you would expect from a traditional Glenfiddich expression. Finished in hand-selected Caribbean rum casks that have previously contained our very own specially made rum, it brings a wealth of exotic flavours to our signature taste.

Recently, we took some time to speak with London-based Benedict Morgan, the still life photographer who’s helped us to create our recently revealed “Raised in Scotland. Roused by the Caribbean” campaign - an equally extraordinary and expressive campaign to celebrate this fine expression and bring to life its fascinating story, vibrant character and distinctive, complex flavour like never before.

We caught up with Ben behind the scenes.
