Let’s set the scene.
We’re at a long lunch at a luxurious house in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs overlooking Gordons Bay, a venue that is very fitting for the celebrations.
It’s post Australian Fashion Week, and we’re here to celebrate rising Australian fashion designer Jordan Dalah following his runway debut opening Afterpay Australian Fashion Week (AAFW) and toast to the collaboration between Glenfiddich, the World’s Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch Whisky and Dalah.
“The opportunity to open AAFW this year, the first physical Fashion Week since the pandemic began, is such a privilege. I am so excited to work with Glenfiddich on my creative journey as a designer and share my vision as we collaborate on future creative endeavours,” said Dalah.
Dalah’s unwavering passion, pioneering ambition and designs are what drew the Glenfiddich team to him. Glenfiddich Brand Ambassador, Ross Blainey said: “Glenfiddich has always forged its own path and is renowned worldwide for being the first to experiment and push the boundaries in the Single Malt category. We see those same values in Jordan and his approach to the label.”
Dalah celebrated his successful debut at AAFW with Glenfiddich’s latest creation Grand Cru. The new expression is an exclusive whiskey that has been matured for 23 years and elegantly finished in rare french cuvée oak. It’s a whiskey for those tearing up the rule book and wanting to celebrate significant life moments in a whole new way.
Grand Cru encapsulates the craftsmanship and the spirit of luxury that both Glenfiddich and Dalah are renowned for. The collaboration will see the two push boundaries in mastery, innovation and artistry as they come together to create limited-edition packaging and a luxury gown inspired by Glenfiddich expressions.
Glenfiddich’s partnership with Dalah is the first time the Global brand has engaged an Australian designer to elevate its story. Glenfiddich Grand Cru is available in luxury whisky retail outlets and premium establishments at a recommended retail price of $395.
