Glenfiddich Distillery


In the heart of the Highlands, surrounded by forest, the ruins of a medieval castle and a natural spring, is a landscape little changed since 1886. That’s when Glenfiddich’s founder, William Grant, gathered his family of nine children to build the distillery with their bare hands. Around one year later, on Christmas Day, 1887, the first Glenfiddich spirit trickled from the stills.

Visits to our distillery are free. Each visit starts with a film about the history of Glenfiddich, after which we show you the very heart of our operation. Feel the heat rising from the mash tun and discover the giant washbacks, hand-made from Douglas fir and five metres high. Experience one of our traditional warehouses – whose earthen floors, stone walls, low ceilings and quiet atmosphere nurture this famous whisky to life.
