SCOTLAND BORN WITH AN AMERICAN ACCENT: GLENFIDDICH PROUDLY RELEASES THE ALL-NEW 14 YEAR BOURBON BARREL RESERVE IN CANADA THIS AUGUST
August 21, 2019
Toronto, ON- The world’s most awarded single malt scotch whisky, Glenfiddich, adds the all-new 14 Year Old Bourbon Barrel Reserve to its incredible selection of award-winning whiskies, nationwide.
The Glenfiddich Bourbon Barrel Reserve is a single malt scotch, matured exclusively in ex-bourbon casks for 14 years. Finished in deeply charred new American Oak casks, the liquid delivers a rich, sweet and vibrant flavour to this award-winning single malt scotch.
“With notes of fresh oak and velvety caramel, Glenfiddich 14 Year Bourbon Barrel Reserve is the perfect marriage of bourbon sweetness and Scotch complexity,” comments Brian Kinsman, Glenfiddich Malt Master and 2019 Winner of the Icons of Whisky for Master Distiller and Master Blender of the Year. “It remains true to the Glenfiddich heritage of producing fruity and beautifully rich whiskies.”
A tribute to the shared history of American and Scotch whisky, Glenfiddich 14 Year Bourbon Barrel Reserve is presented in a rich royal-blue package, inspired by the colors of the Kentucky state flag. Embossed with Glenfiddich’s iconic gold stag, the packaging pays tribute to the deep and meaningful contribution the American whisky industry has had on the single malt scotch industry in Scotland.
“American Oak casks have always played a significant role in single malt Scotch whisky maturation and the flavor profiles we find today,” comments Beth Havers, Canadian Brand Ambassador for Glenfiddich.
“The result is a beautifully complex scotch with flavors of woody spices combined with ripe summer fruit, a result from the spirit’s interaction with the casks.”
Certified Kosher and only available in Canada and the U.S., the Glenfiddich 14 Year Bourbon Barrel Reserve will be available at select retailers across the country year-round, and release in time for National Bourbon Heritage Month this September (celebrated in the US and recognized around the world).
“We are delighted to welcome and share this new and exciting addition from Glenfiddich; which is born in Scotland with an American Accent,” comments Rupy Singh, Senior National Brand Manager in Canada, Glenfiddich. “We look forward to sharing this newest Glenfiddich release with Canadians (of legal-drinking age) from coast to coast”.
