“Glenfiddich and MR PORTER have consistently challenged convention throughout their history, always pushing industry boundaries and innovation. This collaboration marks a first for both brands, joining a heritage and style as one, culminating in a limited and collectable whisky to enjoy for many years to come” comments Ben Palmer, MR PORTER Creative Director.
The rich and indulgent single malt has been curated by MR PORTER Creative Director, Ben Palmer, under the expert guidance of Glenfiddich Malt Master, Brian Kinsman. Both taste leaders have worked in tandem to develop the perfect final liquid, hand selecting casks of New American oak, ex bourbon and European oak sherry casks, married together to create a deep, silky smooth single malt. This use of Glenfiddich’s innovative Solera technique combines the three casks to create a bigger, richer and more complex flavour; a rare marriage of casks”.
Brian Kinsman, Glenfiddich’s Malt Master, said: “Innovation, craft, style and curation remains at the heart of both brands. Where Glenfiddich’s highly creative nature and diligent techniques have seen the brand create the best quality and innovative whiskies for 134 years, MR PORTER’s meticulous sourcing of the world’s leading lifestyle labels and brands has made it the world destination for style.”
Keep a lookout for its bespoke casing, this is also designed by Palmer and Kinsman. You will see the bottle presented in a crisp white, embossed casing, lined with a subtly designed, minimalistic monogram featuring the two iconic brand emblems.
Claudia Falcone, Glenfiddich Global Brand Director comments on the collaboration, “We are delighted to work alongside a brand that shares a similar ethos and approach to their craft and iconic curation. The marrying of style and heritage has created a unique and distinctive collector’s item of the best quality. This partnership with MR PORTER is the first of its kind and demonstrates how Glenfiddich is constantly striving to think ‘Where Next’ as a brand. It is this underlying ethos that has driven us historically and challenged us to break new ground.”
