Glenfiddich Distillery

Dufftown, United Kingdom

Glenfiddich is a Speyside single malt Scotch whisky produced by William Grant & Sons in the Scottish burgh of Dufftown in Moray. Glenfiddich means 'valley of the deer' in Scottish Gaelic, which is why the Glenfiddich logo is a stag.

The Glenfiddich Distillery was founded in 1886 by William Grant in Dufftown, Scotland, in the glen of the River Fiddich. The Glenfiddich single malt whisky first ran from the stills on Christmas Day, 1887.

    Good COVID19 measures in place. Not a huge variety in the shop but a few decent bottles at every price range. Unfortunately the lounge was fully booked, so no option to try any drams

    Really well laid out gift shop inside the Glenfiddich Distillery near Dufftown. The items on display (mosty single malt whisky) are beautifully set out with their prices clearly shown. They vary from 12 years to over 50 years old but then you have to have big money to pay for the older ones. There are other items with the Glenfiddich logo that you can purchase but check on the price before you buy, they are of course first class quality items. Helpful staff.

    Arch of Constantine

    The Arch of Constantine is situated between the Colosseum and the Palatine Hill. It was erected by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine I's victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in 312. Dedicated in 315, it is the largest Roman triumphal arch. The arch spans the Via triumphalis, the way taken by the emperors when they entered the city in triumph.

    Though dedicated to Constantine, much of the decorative material incorporated earlier work from the time of the emperors Trajan (98-117), Hadrian (117-138) and Marcus Aurelius (161-180), and is thus a collage. The last of the existing triumphal arches in Rome, it is also the only one to make extensive use of spolia, reusing several major reliefs from 2nd century imperial monuments, which give a striking and famous stylistic contrast to the sculpture newly created for the arch.

    The arch is 21 m high, 25.9 m wide and 7.4 m deep. Above the archways is placed the attic, composed of brickwork reveted (faced) with marble. A staircase within the arch is entered from a door at some height from the ground, on the west side, facing the Palatine Hill. The general design with a main part structured by detached columns and an attic with the main inscription above is modelled after the example of the Arch of Septimius Severus on the Roman Forum.
