To celebrate its pioneering family spirit and maverick attitude, Glenfiddich has launched its Whisky Wanderer, a whisky lounge on wheels to delight enthusiasts and novices from across Australia with a unique taste of the dram and its treasured history.
Celebrating maverick tendencies, the Glenfiddich Whisky Wanderer will bring a truly spirited single malt journey to life.
Having started at the Good Food & Wine Show in Melbourne, the bus will then travel on to Sydney (June 21-23) and Brisbane (October 25-27) for the shows, with additional stops along the way.
With intimate spirit tastings and food pairings, the sessions will offer the ideal introduction for those beginning their whisky journey, and something new for whisky enthusiasts.
Sitting at over four metres tall and 10 metres long, the 1972 Leyland double-decker bus has been reconstructed with a high-class premium bar, hydraulic pop-up roof and glinting copper stag head.
Glenfiddich brand ambassador Luke Sanderson will be embarking on an epic three-year journey with the Whisky Wanderer. As part of his tour, he will travel more than 9000km across the country to share his whisky expertise with inquisitive mavericks - the biggest dedicated whisky tour ever made in Australia.
"Glenfiddich is renowned worldwide for its mastery and innovation, so we wanted to share this appreciation by bringing a hint of our Scottish Highlands distillery to life in Australia," Sanderson said.
"In true Glenfiddich style, our travelling whisky lounge is the ideal experience for both whisky enthusiasts and those looking to try their first Single Malt."
Sanderson will be joined on tour by one of Australia's greatest food mavericks, Matt Moran, who has stepped beyond the kitchen to delve into another of one his great loves - whisky.
"Glenfiddich's philosophy for possibilities and innovation is what drew me to this partnership,"Moran said.
"We share a like-minded passion to push boundaries and continually strive to reach new heights. I'm excited to see what comes next and of course the opportunity to learn more about their wonderful whisky doesn't hurt either."
On the Whisky Wanderer, attendees will have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of whisky and sample a range of malts, as well as the opportunity to create a personalised bottle of Glenfiddich.
