Virgin oak for Glenfiddich variant

Published:  26 February, 2010

Glenfiddich has unveiled a new variant which is aged in new oak.

The 14 year old Glenfiddich Rich Oak Single Malt Scotch Whisky is launched today at Whisky Live.

Malt master Brian Kinsman said the oak created a "new and complex harmony of rich flavours".

To celebrate the whisky's association with virgin European wood, Glenfiddich is planning to plant an oak forest. The current chairman and fifth generation descendent of the distillery's founder, Peter Gordon, will plant the first sapling in March, ahead of a grand opening in November.

Glenfiddich Rich Oak, supplied by First Drinks, has a recommended retail price of £30.99.
