A rare vintage relaunched

AN old dram unveiled its new look at a special event in Edinburgh last month.

William Grant & Sons relaunched its Glenfiddich 30 year old single malt at The Kitchin, where trade guests were treated to a bespoke seasonal menu created by Michelin starred chef Tom Kitchin and paired with a range of Glenfiddich whiskies selected by brand ambassador for Scotland, Mark Thomson, culminating with the Glenfiddich 30 year old. Described as “rich and complex”, the 30 year old marries American and European cask-matured whiskies from Glenfiddich.

Inverarity Morton supported the launch by providing wines to pair with courses, which were introduced by wine brand manager Guy Chatfield.

Thomson said: “Our guests seemed suitably impressed, especially with the 30 year old which rose to the occasion. Whilst the whisky inside the bottle is not changing, we wanted to give our guests the opportunity to try this exceptional dram, in exquisite surroundings to celebrate its new exquisite packaging.”
