A PERFECTLY MATURED GLENFIDDICH
Cask number 516 was filled with new-make Glenfiddich spirit on 16th January 1976. Over the 31 years it lay in a distillery warehouse, the European oak butt, which had formerly been used to mature Spanish sherry, has gently imparted a full and distinguished character into its contents.

Yielding 549 70cl bottles at 51.9% ABV, the Glenfiddich Vintage Reserve 1976 is packaged in a solid oak presentation box and distributed to appreciative whisky drinkers around the world.
