Glenfiddich is a whisky distillery located in Dufftown, Speyside, Scotland, one of the most well-known areas for making and aging whisky. Glenfiddich is known around the world to produce the most famous single malts and is an ambassador of Scottish traditions. The distillery has its own cooperage and a natural water source which ensures consistent quality and style over time. In 1887 William Grant founded the Glenfiddich Distillery at Dufftown in the Fiddich River Valley. He had previously worked for twenty years at the Mortlach distillery as a manager and an accountant. Its stills came from the old Cardhu distillery that its owners were rebuilding. The first bottles of Glenfiddich whisky were produced during the Christmas period of 1887. In 1957, the company began bottling their whisky in a triangular bottle. Later, W. Grant & Sons were the first to wrap their bottles in tubes and gift packs. In 1969, Glenfiddich was the first distillery to open a shop for visitors.
