Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch 125th Anniversary!

This year marks the 125th anniversary of Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch!

 

While Glenfiddich will officially be celebrating the milestone with a star-studded soiree at the Statue of Liberty, these recipes can allow anyone (even whisky novices) to celebrate all that sets Glenfiddich apart.

 

Whisky cocktails are experiencing a resurgence, and single malt cocktails are a unique and under-explored category of their own. For those looking to add a modern twist to more traditional Scotch cocktails, The Pioneering Spirit is sure to be a hit with its refreshing use of pear juice and agave nectar.

 

The anniversary event, hosted by Entourage star Adrian Grenier, will feature a live auction of the world’s most valuable whisky, Glenfiddich Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve. And while we may not all be able to enjoy a dram of the 55 year old Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve, we can certainly all enjoy a Mrs. Roberts, a one-of-a-kind cocktail created to honor the occasion.
