This Lunar New Year, feel the prosperity flow and toast to an extraordinary Year of the Rabbit with Glenfiddich. The family-owned distiller, part of William Grant & Sons, has unveiled its annual limited-edition Chinese New Year gift packs designed by Shanghai-based illustrator, Yixin Zeng – known for his vibrant, expressive and detailed style of painting.
A JOURNEY TO EXTRAORDINARY
It takes a series of incredible journeys to create a truly extraordinary Chinese New Year. As loved ones gather from near and far during this year’s festive season, Glenfiddich has created a collection of special packs to commemorate the occasion and gift to friends and family, as the perfect symbolic present.
The design features the iconic Glenfiddich Stag (Fu Lu 福鹿) which represents wealth, prosperity and longevity in Chinese culture. On pack, the magnificent Stag takes centre stage amidst a fantastical scene rich with texture, vibrant festive patterns and colourful elements surrounding its antlers – each detailing the series of journeys that come together to create an extraordinary Chinese New Year.

“Every Chinese New Year is a meaningful celebration for many around the world. For us at Glenfiddich, the synergy and significance that our brand icon has with the festival is very meaningful. We are excited to partner with acclaimed illustrator, Yixin Zeng, whose bold and effervescent style is just what we were looking for to bring this year’s limited edition Chinese New Year gift packs to life. From the first drop of our single malt Scotch whisky to the last, we want to invite friends of Glenfiddich to embark on this auspicious journey into the extraordinary,” said Will Peacock, Global Luxury Director of William Grant & Sons.
