In true maverick spirit, Glenfiddich, as part of world-renowned distillery, William Grant & Sons Ltd, pushes the status quo, elevating ordinary celebration moments to extraordinary ones with the launch of its newest range, the Glenfiddich Grand Series.

The new range is a beautifully disruptive series that oozes opulence and is designed to elevate occasions and celebratory moments in a whole new way. The Gran Reserva, Grand Cru and Grande Couronne; each imbued with intriguing and indulgent finishes. An unexpected marriage of luxury and tradition, the Grand Series is the embodiment of elevated luxury and opulence, that aims to elevate even the most special occasions.

Brett Bayly, Southeast Asia Brand Ambassador for Glenfiddich shared, “At Glenfiddich, we believe that grand occasions deserve grand celebrations. Combining a time-honoured vision with the maverick spirit and determination to blaze new trails, the Glenfiddich Grand Series is a celebration of the extraordinary. From unexpected cask finishes of Caribbean rum to French cuvée and cognac casks, the Grand Series showcases our ability to experiment with aged liquid and intriguing finishes – bringing together luxury and traditional worlds in an unexpected marriage and elevating ordinary occasions to offer a true taste of opulence.”
The Glenfiddich Grand Series features three distinct themes, for the most extraordinary celebrations.
Gran Reserva: Raised in Scotland, roused by the Caribbean
Adding an indulgent finishing touch to any moment, the Gran Reserva transforms the uncommon into the unequalled. Every occasion deserves a celebration – toast to personal triumphs in barefoot luxurious fashion. The very best of Scotland and the Caribbean, encased in a vibrant, deep amber packaging and reminiscent of the warm hues of beach sunsets. The packaging is complete with Caribbean-inspired illustrations, as a perfect blend of tradition and rebellion.
Grand Cru: The finest inspirations from Scotland and France fused through the art of experimentation
The Grand Cru is as far from ordinary as it gets with a daring and unexpected expression that redefines moments of celebration with true luxury and elegance. Corked in a bottle of black glass embellished with gold foil, its lavish exterior offers hints of the indulgence and craftsmanship. A truly impeccable accessory for any social event of the season.
Grande Couronne: The crowning glory to your celebrations
The crowning glory to any occasion and the epitome of true opulence is the Grande Couronne. Its very name, meaning crown in French, seals the promise of the pleasure, and the pinnacle of the night’s revelry. Setting the stage for an unforgettable celebration, the rare Grande Couronne is encased in a 26-sided gold closure and adorned with gold filigree. Each one nestled in beautiful packaging embellished with fresco artwork, designed to impress at the most important of occasions.
Bringing to life the grandeur of the three distinct expressions, the ensuing five-course dinner developed by British Michelin starred chef Alain Roux was the delight of the night, alongside the star pairings of the exquisite Glenfiddich Grand Series.
Starting off the first course, complementing the Gran Reserva (21 YO), is a delight mixture of flaked crab, tomato consommé jelly, rocket coulis and oscietra caviar to entice the palette.
The Grand Cru (23 YO) makes an appearance in the main course, paired beautifully with either a choice of grilled fillet of turbot, souffle potatoes and hollandaise sauce with chervil, or a fillet of wagyu beef “Zingara” style with truffle.
Last but not least, the dessert course is finished off with a perfect pairing of the Grande Couronne (26 YO), as guests indulged in a unique creation of blood orange Norwegian omelette, flavoured with ginger and iced whiskey parfait.
