This year has seen Mumbai Duty Free (Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport), list one of just 50 bottles of Glenfiddich 50 Year Old released globally this year.
One of the rarest and most precious expressions of single malt ever released by William Grant & Sons for Glenfiddich, the 50 Year Old was first released in 2009. Since then, just 50 bottles have been released each year, with the final 50 bottled in 2017. Mumbai Duty Free (operated by Flemingo International) is the latest to offer customers the opportunity to purchase this amazing liquid.
This latest precious whisky released in Glenfiddich’s 125th Year, features a bottle collar of Sterling silver, designed by sixth generation silversmiths Thomas Fattorini. The individually numbered, hand-blown bottles are set in beautifully hand-stitched, leather-bound cases, inspired by the personal ledgers of Glenfiddich’s pioneering forefather, William Grant. Nestled inside the case is a leather-bound book that details the whisky’s rich history as well as the stories of the expert craftsmen who nurtured it.
Commenting on the launch, WGS Business Development Manager ISC Hardeep Sethi said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be offering Mumbai Duty Free customers the opportunity to purchase this incredible and unique whisky. Glenfiddich 50 Year Old is a true expression of our heritage and the ultimate symbol of exclusivity. It epitomises the craftsmanship and credentials of the entire Glenfiddich portfolio, and we’re proud to be bringing this rare and precious whisky to India. ”
Speaking on the occasion, Manishi Sanwal, CEO-Mumbai Duty Free added: “It’s an honour to be one of the few chosen airport retailers to list Glenfiddich 50 year old, reflecting our ongoing commitment to deliver a unique offer to our customers while driving the ultra-premium spirits category. Our customers will be thrilled about this availability. We’re delighted to be partnering with William Grant & Sons to bring this incredible whisky to the store.”
