Glenfiddich 15 Years Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky
It has started in the same way for over 125 years. With a keen eye, our mashman into the mash tun. A mixture of our specially-sourced barley, ground down and added to our Robbie Dhu springwater, is heated to 64°C. The porridge-like ‘mash’ turns to sugar, dissolving into a fine sweet, tangy liquid called wort. The wort is drained, cooled and passed into our Wash Backs, where yeast is added and fermentation begins.
