Many parts of Asia and South-east Asia will be celebrating the lunar new year soon, and Glenfiddich is joining in the celebrations. The brand is going to release a limited edition 18-year-old bottle. You will immediately recognise it when you see it, because it has a stunning illustration of a stag on it.
The art was created by Shenzhen-based artist Rlon Wang. The stag has 12 antlers, due to the brand’s ‘royal’ classification. There’s a medal and a ribbon around the stag’s neck, since this brand is one of the most awarded ones in the world.
Wang has made the design based on his personal memories of spending the lunar new year with his family. The stag itself symbolizes prosperity and good fortune. The river in the background is an homage to the Glenfiddich distillery.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with artist Rlon Wang to offer travellers a limited-edition design during this important festive period. We know that luxury spirits consumers are looking for culturally relevant gifts from brands with heritage and authentic stories, which makes Glenfiddich 18-Year-Old the perfect gift this Lunar New Year,” said William Grant and Sons, of which Glenfiddich is a subsidiary.
As for the single malt itself, it is rich and full-bodied, and packs in a lot of flavour. It will be available in airports across Asia, such as Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Taipei.
