This year Glenfiddich Distillery is celebrating its 130th anniversary and it looks like there may be something special for the enthusiasts. According to the Instagram account @Glenfiddich_Fan_Pl, the distillery is getting ready to release a two bottle Glenfiddich 130 Anniversary Limited Edition expressions package which will be limited to just 300 units.

Please do not forget that there is no official statement from the distillery itself, everything we discuss here should be treated as buzz… even the whole thing may not see daylight but based on the pictures there is a great chance that this might be legit.

Glenfiddich Distillery was founded by Willian Grant in 1887. According to the information provided by the company; ‘William Grant fulfils a lifelong ambition and starts building his own distillery with the help of his nine children and a single stone mason. He names it Glenfiddich, Gaelic for Valley of the Deer. After a year of hard labour the first drop of spirit falls from the copper stills on Christmas Day 1887.’
