Our award-winning whiskies are sold in the world’s finest bars, manned by exceptional bartenders – the drinks industry attracts inventive, expressive people and some of the most exciting developments we’re seeing today result from maverick collaborations. Great things happen when different minds, passions, viewpoints or crafts collide. We want to celebrate bartenders who are masters of their trade, yet continue to push beyond the expected by finding inspiration in the most unexpected of places.”

Glenfiddich has always been at the forefront of innovation in the whisky industry; recognised as both the world’s most awarded single malt and the brand that challenged the norm by taking single malt beyond Scotland’s borders to create the category as it is known today. With this global hunt it aims to establish itself as the ignition platform for a creative experience with co-creation from collaborator mavericks and participating bartenders.
