Glenfiddich Singapore Anniversary Edition 50 Year Old


To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s independence, Glenfiddich, the World’s Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch whisky, has released the Singapore Anniversary Edition 50 Year Old, a limited-edition bottling of which only five are available. A rare whisky with delicate and exquisite flavours, it is the product of over half a century of unparalleled pride, passion and whisky-making diligence. The culmination of the company’s vision, passion and single-minded philosophy, spanning over 127 years, this prestigious liquid is a reflection of the family’s unwavering commitment to creating spirits of exceptional quality.

Those who taste the Glenfiddich Singapore Anniversary Edition 50 Year Old will experience perfectly balanced and complex flavours, from the years the whisky spent maturing in oak casks. The nose is uplifting, vibrant and complex. The taste is initially sweet with zesty orange marmalade and vanilla toffee, which then cascades through a wonderful series of layers: aromatic herbs, floral and soft fruits, silky oak tannin and hints of gentle smoke. The finish is exceptionally long with a touch of dry oak and the merest trace of peat.

Heritage and family values are reflected throughout the bottle design – each bottle has been individually hand-blown by an expert glass studio, and adorned with Scottish silver crafted by Thomas Fattorini, a sixth generation silversmith. Decorations subtly integrating the Scottish Thistle and the Singaporean Vanda Miss Joaquim orchid are featured on the bottle, casing and certificate. Nestled inside the hand-stitched case is a leather-bound book which details the rich history of the whisky and Singapore as an independent nation, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Peter Gordon.

The Glenfiddich Singapore Anniversary Edition 50 Year Old will be sold privately, and is available at ₤30,000. Each bottle is accompanied by a one of a kind art piece by five locally-based artists – Andy Yang, Eugene Tan, Chan Wai Lim, Sean Dunston and Flabslab.
