Glenfiddich, the world’s most awarded single malt Scotch whisky is bringing back The Original, the recipe that started it all, just in time for Christmas.
Inspired by the original Glenfiddich recipe, this special edition is a unique addition to the Glenfiddich collection and serves as the perfect holiday gift for every whisky enthusiast.
Glenfiddich single malt was the first to be actively promoted outside of Scotland. Consumers around the world, previously used to drinking blended whisky, were initiated into the delights of single malt, until then a well-kept secret.
Brian Kinsman, Glenfiddich’s Master Blender was charged with the task of concocting a recipe to re-create a whisky in the style of the 1963 release.
Kinsman was armed with only the notes and archives of the original Glenfiddich Master Blender, as well as some original, uncovered barrels of The Original to sample, says Calem Chadwick, Glenfiddich Brand Ambassador.
“And now to welcome back The Original, Glenfiddich is hosting an exclusive event to celebrate the limited edition product but also for guests to thank their very own original, their fathers.”
The Original Glenfiddich Club is an exclusive club for whisky lovers, held at The Northern Club in Auckland, to bring their fathers/father figures/mentors and thank them for all they have done over the years, while enjoying a tipple and a slice of Glenfiddich’s history.
This exclusive event will run for two days only from 6pm-9pm Thursday 15th December and 1pm-9pm Friday 16th December.

Reminiscent of its era, The Original is pleasantly sweet with lively fruit notes and a soft vanilla oakiness – a 1960s experience in a glass.
The Original Glenfiddich is best served with a touch of water, allowing its flavours to develop and reveal delicate spices, citrus and fresh baked oatcakes.
Glenfiddich has always been at the forefront of innovation in the whisky industry; recognised as both the world’s most awarded single malt and the brand that challenged the norm by taking single malt beyond Scotland’s borders to create the internationally renowned category we know today.
