William Grant & Sons has launched the Glenfiddich Residence Cask Vintage 1992 single malt Scotch whisky at DFS Singapore Changi Airport in collaboration with travel retailer DFS Group.
This latest edition is one of the highlights within the Glenfiddich Rare Collection made up of an ensemble of single cask releases picked by malt master Brian Kinsman to reflect the classic taste profile of Glenfiddich.
“For over 30 years DFS has connected travellers and wines and spirits lovers at Changi Airport by offering a unique and exclusive product offering,” says Brooke Supernaw, senior VP global merchandising – spirits, wine and tobacco. “We’re thrilled to continue that journey as we bring the Glenfiddich Residence Cask Vintage 1992 exclusively to DFS, creating once again, an opportunity for our valued customers to have their own piece of history.”
In true bespoke fashion worthy of the exceptional whisky, the Glenfiddich Residence Cask Vintage 1992 bottles are individually numbered and presented in hand-crafted leather boxes featuring detailed cask information.
As part of the Glenfiddich Residence Cask Programme in partnership with DFS, shoppers have the option to personalise the foot label upon purchase to either remember their unique travel experience or as a personalised gift for someone special. Owners of these exclusive bottles can also fill out a leather bound ledger book which will be sent back to the distillery and put on display, becoming a part of the Glenfiddich history.
Matured in American Oak (ex-Bourbon) cask number 8247, this 22 year old spirit is distilled in 1992 and bottled at cask strength of 58.7%. The release is limited to only 200 bottles and exclusively available to DFS.
This launch coincides with the opening of the Glenfiddich Residence Changi, a shop-in-shop at DFS’s new double-storey Wines and Spirits flagship store at Terminal 3 Changi Airport where shoppers can experience the Glenfiddich provenance through beautiful displays and have the opportunity to taste a variety of whiskies, while learning more about Glenfiddich through our brand ambassadors.
