Glenfiddich – Burns Night

written by HA

Burns Night is fast approaching and in celebration of Scotland’s national poet Robert Burns, folks up and down the UK will be tucking into a Burns’ Supper and there are plenty of pubs getting in on the action this year too!

Hel’s Angels is proud to work with Glenfiddich to bring their superb, core, single malt range to a variety of venues for a ‘Discover Our Family’ tasting session.

This special opportunity is the perfect introduction to the Glenfiddich range from one of the oldest family-owned distilleries in the world. Our Glenfiddich Ambassadors will guide you through the expressions to find the perfect year from their signature 12, 15 and 18 Year Old Malts.

We hand pick our Glenfiddich Ambassadors or Mentors as we like to call them, from across the country. A passion for quality whisky with a gift of story telling enables our mentors to deliver an authentic experience, bringing the flavours and vision of this innovative brand to life.

We like to think we share the same values of family and quality when selecting our staff. Passing down the knowledge bestowed upon us from the Glenfiddich team ensures that the Glenfiddich story travels from the Valley of the Deer, in Dufftown, to cities, towns and villages across the United Kingdom.
