From the most awarded Single Malt in the world, the Glenfiddich Grande Couronne (Great Crown in French) 26 Year Old with its second maturation in Cognac casks is the is the epitome of opulence. It’s the crème de la crème in the Glenfiddich Grand Series, which also includes the Caribbean Rum cask finished Gran Reserva 21 Year Old, Spanish Sherry cask finished Gran Cortez 22 Year Old, and our March 2021 Add In, the Cuvée cask finished Grand Cru 23 Year Old.

Highly respected Glenfiddich Malt Master Brian Kinsman said "The Grand Series perfectly encapsulates Glenfiddich’s spirit of innovation and our ability to experiment with aged liquid and intriguing finishes. Grande Couronne is the latest to exemplify that approach. It is the only Glenfiddich single malt that has matured in American and European oak casks and finished in rare French Cognac casks. The length of the finish, two years, is highly unusual and adds extra layers of sweet, toasted oak and velvety aromas of café crème, brown sugar and soft spice."

As well as those extra layers added by the Cognac casks, you’ll find Glenfiddich’s signature orchard fruits amongst a range of patisserie items full of baking spices; the 26 years in cask has really brought out some lovely desert notes.

The Glenfiddich Grande Couronne 26 Year Old is whisky grandeur at its best, a decadent liquid for both collectors and anyone wanting to save a special bottle for a significant moment. It’s mouthwateringly delicious and most certainly worthy of the crown bestowed to it.
