As they venture across the vast Australian continent in a converted 1970’s bus Glenfiddich hope to share the story of their incredibly delectable whiskey with Australians in a unique setting that not only highlight’s the brands rich history but simultaneously allows the consumers to see where the brand is heading and that’s just what they did yesterday as I, along with some other Melbourne foodies were treated to a first hand look at the brands range inside the bus as the brand landed at Melbourne’s Good Food & Wine Show.
Inside the “Whiskey Wanderer”, a makeshift two-story converted bus equipped with a bar, a seated drinking area and a captains lodge, we were taken aboard and upon reaching the upper level and sitting in the quaintly decorated homely area we were walked through the brand, by expert foodie and acclaimed chef Matt Moran, before being treated to a exquisite range of never-to-be-again tasted drops from the brands Scottish houses in a taste-test that I can assure you no-one wanted to miss. As brand ambassador Luke Sanderson walked us through each of the nips we were treated to tips and tricks, when it comes to making and distilling, of the trade before making our very own whiskey, which we were allowed to take with us!
If you’re yet to see the Whiskey Wanderer by Glenfiddich for yourself then what are you waiting for? Melbourne your time has come and gone but you can catch the beautiful beast herself at the Sydney and Brisbane Good Food & Wine Shows later this year, which I highly recommend and as you sip on one of their cocktails and learn about the brand that first brought whiskey to the world raise a glass for me!
