This month, Glenfiddich, the leading Single Malt Scotch Whisky in the world, is unveiling a limited edition bottling exclusively in the USA. In 1886, with the assistance of his seven sons and two daughters, William Grant decided to take on a lifelong dream. Together, the family built his distillery by hand, which was hard work that truly paid off. After one year of planning and construction it was ready and William named it Glenfiddich, which Gaelic for Valley of the Deer. The distillery is still owned and run by the fifth generation of the Grant family, and remains the only Scotch Whisky to use a single source of natural spring water directly from the Conval Hills in Scotland.
In 2012 the company launched a Cask of Dreams Campaign which allowed consumers to share their ultimate goals in life for a chance to possibly win and make their dream a reality. The entries were written on an actual cask and two winners were selected each month to have their name and dream on an exclusive edition of the Cask of Dreams. A single winner was chosen and received $15,000 to start their journey toward making their dream a reality. Consumers can view all the winners and their dreams on the packaging of the bottle when released this month!
Cask of Dreams is a special blend of Glenfiddich whiskies taken from a hand-picked selection of American oak barrels that have held matured whiskies of a variety of ages. The youngest whisky is 14 Years Old and was then decanted into new American oak barrels to bring a powerful vanilla sweetness to the whisky. The casks were closely monitored by Master Distiller Brian Kinsman to ensure a desirable blend of oak, spice, vanilla, and fruit balance. The beautiful and creative packaging highlights the cask, showing the entries of the thousands who had a helpful hand in making this whisky. Glenfiddich’s commitment to integrity shines through in this limited production of only 6,660 bottles. You can find this bottle in select store and retail locations for $99. Become inspired and always remember to live your dreams like William and his family did–anything is possible and you never know what the future has in store for you!
