The originators of the worlds first global single malt? Yes, that’s Glenfiddich. Launching their Straight Malt in 1963 with Sandy Grant Gordon carrying a suitcase full of bottles across the United States and getting the brand on TV adverts, as a result, Glenfiddich is more than likely to be the first single malt whisky that we ever meet. The size of Glenfiddich isn’t to be underestimated, as a company that produces single malt of all styles across the biggest single malt facility in the world, currently. To give you a scale of that size the distillery has a total of 43 stills…43!
