Glenfiddich was the first malt distillery to market their whisky outside of Scotland. While marketing Glenfiddich single malt the owners also promoted Scotland, its history and heritage.
The Clans of the Scottish Highlands series released in the 1980s included seven bottlings of standard Glenfiddich presented in individually illustrated tins to celebrate the Highland most powerful clans. Montgomery is one of the oldest Scottish clans, the progenitors of which came from Normandy. The collector’s tin is adorned with a portrait of Hugh Montgomerie, 12th Earl of Eglinton (1739-1819), a respected Member of Parliament, talented composer and cellist.
