Campari releases Glen Grant Fiodh for DFS
Campari has released new expression Glen Grant Fiodh for DFS Masters of Wines & Spirits, described as the “most premium ever whisky” from the brand.
Taking its name from the Gaelic word for “wood”, Glen Grant Fiodh is the first in a series of Scotch whiskies in The Back Burn Collection.
Glen Grant Fiodh is bottled from a cask filled in 1972, the last year that Glen Grant used peated malt.
Campari says the cask was “rediscovered” earlier this year, with less than 20 litres of liquid remaining in the wood.
10 decanters have been released for travel retailer DFS Group’s now annual wines and spirits showcase
Created in partnership with DFS, the collection’s name references the Black Burn, a watercourse which runs behind the Glen Grant distillery in Rothes, Scotland.
The expression is presented in a handcrafted casket of wood cut from one tree. Each of the ten decanters features a unique, hand-engraved pattern representing the tree’s rings.
Stoppered with solid wood embellished with silver and gold, Campari says the bottle has been designed to appeal to collectors and connoisseurs alike.
Leigh Irvine, GTR Director, Gruppo Campari, said: “This new whisky is our rarest and most sought after product to date. It is the most exquisite whisky Glen Grant has ever produced.
“We are honoured to partner with DFS in this year’s Masters of Wines and Spirits event, and we are sure this new collection will be the first in an exciting and innovative series.”
DFS Masters of Wines and Spirits takes place in Singapore from 7-30 November.
