A journey to the home of Glenfiddich makes you appreciate each mouthful even more. "Glenfiddich" means "Valley of the Deer" in Gaelic and, if it sounds like something straight out of a film, being there lives up to all expectations. In the heart of the Highlands, surrounded by forest, the ruins of a medieval castle and a natural spring, is a landscape little changed since 1886. That's when Glenfiddich's founder, William Grant, gathered his family of nine children to build the distillery with their bare hands. Around one year later, on Christmas Day, 1887, the first Glenfiddich spirit trickled from the stills.
