Born in secrecy: Project Glenfiddich XX
The long-term partnership between Stölzle Glass Group and the renowned distillery William Grants and sons resulted in another stunning launch of an outstanding precious whisky filled in a great bottle.
Designed by Here Design on behalf of William Grants and manufactured at Stölzle Flaconnage, the British site of Stölzle Glass Group, Glenfiddich XX was launched in September 2016.
The twenty Glenfiddich ambassadors came together from around the world at the distillery and were given free rein to pick six casks for each to be sampled and narrowed down to create something quintessentially Glenfiddich. Two casks were finally chosen to have a warm summer fruity characteristic with personalities of candy floss, cinnamon spices, and almonds with the odd hint of liquorice.
To complement these luscious flavours Stölzle Flaconnage was given the task to produce a magnificent bottle designed by Here Design to highlight the precious liquid it would contain. The Project XX experience was so shrouded in secrecy that the whisky experts taking part did not know about it until half way through the process!
To add further touch of luxury, a one pass gold print was applied to the stunning bottle. The story behind the unique thumb print on the bottle however is quite special.
This is the amalgamation of the same twenty ambassadors thumb prints: so they share a piece of this product and captured the moment in time where they as a group created something rather special on this bespoke bottle.
