The travel retail arm of William Grant & Sons has teamed with London Heathrow airport and World Duty Free Group to launch a limited edition Glenfiddich variant, exclusive to the channel in the UK.
The Glenfiddich Millennium Vintage Limited Edition single malt comprises a whisky that was distilled in 2000 and bottled in 2012. The variant launched in the World Duty Free stores at London Heathrow last week and will be exclusively available for 12 days. Then, on 25 July, it will be rolled out to all World Duty Free stores across the UK.
The whisky will feature as the ‘Malt of the Month’ in World Duty Free's specialist World of Whiskies outlets. Meanwhile, Heathrow will run a competition on its Facebook page, offering the first bottle, signed by Glenfiddich's malt master, Brian Kinsman, as the prize.
The company was unable to immediately confirm how many units of the Millenium Vintage will be available.
