J&J Hunter Profile

The small Belfast wine and spirits merchant is best known in whisky circles for its bottlings of Glenfiddich single malt. While own label bottlings of the Speyside distillery are extremely rare, J&J Hunter produced a small number of single cask expressions which were distilled in 1964 and matured in first-fill Sherry butts.
