Glenfiddich has announced the launch of an exclusive tasting collection, in collaboration with Master of Malt.

The set showcases four expressions from the Glenfiddich range and a previously unreleased expression, in 30ml drams.

Each tasting collection includes details for a virtual tasting event, hosted by Glenfiddich global brand ambassador Struan Grant Ralph, which takes place every Thursday in April at 8pm.

The tasting will explore the five whiskies in further detail, allowing attendees to expand their knowledge even further.

Speaking of the collection, Struan said: “We are really excited to launch this new Tasting Collection with Master of Malt to continue to make whisky more approachable and accessible.

"Expect to hear all the stories behind the creation of our whiskies as we journey through some of Glenfiddich’s all-time favourites – not to mention a rare opportunity to taste our latest edition, Grande Couronne.”

The tasting collection includes Glenfiddich’s new expression, the Grande Couronne 26 Year Old.

The new expression has just launched in the UK and is matured in American and European oak casks at the Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown, before an extended finish of up to two years in French Cognac casks.

Other drams in the pack include the 23 year old Glenfiddich Grand Cru, the 21 year old Glenfiddich Gran Reserva and the Glenfiddich 18 year old.

Spirits buyer at Master of Malt, Guy Hodcroft added: "It's always exciting to work with family-owned distillers like Glenfiddich, and they have included some of their tastiest recent drops within this pack.

"We'd rather share a dram in person, but to have Struan take us through them online over the coming weeks is a great alternative."

The Glenfiddich and Master of Malt Tasting Collection is available now for delivery across the UK for £59.99.
