Note

Glenfiddich has unveiled its 2021 Lunar New Year Whisky bottle, designed by Rion Wang. Part of a three-edition series, the new offering tells the story of The Great Homecoming and features a bottle of Glenfiddich 21 Year Old Reserva Rum Cask Finish Whisky. The Speyside distillery and Shenzhen-based artist also collaborated on the first edition of the series, which was released in December of 2019.

The Second Glenfiddich 2021 Lunar New Year bottle features the brands iconic Stag, known as Fu Lu in Mandari, and celebrates his triumphant return home to Scotland. I wanted to tell a story that evokes the warmth and excitement of Lunar New Year the irreplaceable feeling and anticipation of finally coming home to loved ones, commented Wang. Inspired by the Glenfiddich spirit of experimentation and adventure, I created an illustration that comes alive with symbols of generations old and new. I loved playing with the symbiosis of Chinese and Scottish cultures two connected countries on opposite sides of the world.

Wangs dynamic four-box design will show people making their way home by road, rail, air and sea, all filled with symbols and bright colors. Glenfiddichs iconic stag represents wealth, prosperity and longevity in Chinese culture.
