MR PORTER Launches Its First Custom Scotch with Glenfiddich

There’s nothing quite like two luxury brands teaming up and making a limited-edition product. Nowadays, it seems commonplace to see unlikely brands collaborate to make an exquisite product, and today is no different. The brands are MR PORTER, the ultimate online curator of luxury menswear, and Glenfiddich, the legendary Speyside Scotch Whisky distillery. This wonderfully unexpected collaboration has yielded a limited release single malt that’s sure to wow the palates of anyone lucky enough to get their hands on a bottle.

For a little over a decade, MR PORTER has been a premier source for luxury menswear. The online retailer has garnered awards and worldwide acclaim as the go-to destination for some of the most popular fashion brands on the planet. Their creative director and whisky aficionado, Ben Palmer, teamed up with Glenfiddich’s Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, to curate a single malt that would parallel the elevated taste that both of these iconic brands embody. The two tastemakers worked in tandem to hand-select the mix of New American oak, ex bourbon, and European oak sherry casks to create a 20-year-aged single malt with a rich, golden color. This particular single malt is complex on the nose, with notes of vanilla, figs, crystallized ginger, and a hint of cinnamon. Its taste is equally rich and smooth, with a palate consisting of fudge, spiced oak, and caramelized Demerara sugar. Expect a long-lasting sweet finish to cap off this delectably indulgent single malt.

Continuing the bespoke motif of this collaboration, the scotch comes in a white, embossed casing (also designed by Palmer and Kinsman) that proudly features a monogram with the two iconic brand emblems. Given the collector’s item status of this collaboration, there are only 1,500 bottles available worldwide, with each retailing at $425. For the chance to purchase the MR PORTER X Glenfiddich Single Malt, prospective buyers must register their interest on Glenfiddich’s website on November 3.

Purchase: $425
