Product Description

Two Scottish classics, Walkers and Glenfiddich Malt Whisky, come together in this deliciously moist and aromatic cake. Unseal the cellophane wrap and savor the aroma of pure heaven: malt whisky from Glenfiddich Distillery mingled with spices and succulent fruits baked into a traditional Walkers cake. Like all Walkers products, the Glenfiddich Highland Whisky Cake is made with only the finest natural ingredients: plump sultanas and cherries, crisp almonds, delicate spices and Glenfiddich malt whisky. There are no artificial flavorings, colorings or preservatives. Just naturally delicious ingredients.

From the Manufacturer

BRAND STORY

The Walkers story begins over a hundred years ago in 1898 in the Scottish Highlands, when the twenty-one year old Joseph Walker opened the doors of his own bakery with a loan of £50 and the dream of making the finest shortbread in the world. In the first year of business, Joseph used every spare moment to perfect his shortbread recipe, and it was time well spent.

As his fame spread, and demand increased for his quality shortbread, Joseph took the first steps to expanding the business by moving to a larger shop in the Speyside village of Aberlour and investing in a horse and cart to deliver his baking further afield.

During the 30s, the business - like Joseph's family - was expanding. Two of his sons - James and Joseph - joined the business, bringing fresh, new ideas with them. By 1936, they had introduced three valuable additions to the business: a range of cakes, a selection of confectionery - and the company's first delivery van. Now Walkers produce could be sold even further afield, and the prospects for expansion were looking promising.

While some manufacturers began to cut corners by using margarine instead of butter, Joseph believed that people still appreciated the care that went into making a superior product like Walkers shortbread. And he was right. That's why, even after Joseph Walker died in 1954, his sons continued to use his original recipe.

Demand grew, and so did the business. By 1961, all three of James' children - Joseph, James and Marjorie - had joined the business, making the third generation of Walkers working for the family firm. By 1975, Walkers had outgrown their extended bakery, and moved to a custom built factory that gave them the extra space and facilities they needed to develop new products such as Chocolate Chip Shortbread and specialty cookies.

By the 1970s, Joseph's grandchildren had begun exporting Walkers shortbread to over 60 countries around the world - still baking to his original recipe. Within a decade, they won the first of three Queen's Awards for Export Achievement - the highest accolade given to British exporters.

Then, as now, Walkers stayed in touch with their customers by testing every new product in Aberlour's village shop. So, customers around the world are enjoying a range of products that were first given the seal of approval by the villagers of Aberlour. Consistent quality and traditionally delicious recipes have made Walkers the choice of the most discerning customers and retailers.

Walkers reputation grows day by day as loyal customers worldwide delight in traditional shortbreads and innovative new products like almond, ginger and luxurious chocolate covered shortbread. All Walkers' products are packaged in its unmistakable red tartan and proudly bearing the image of Bonnie Prince Charlie and Flora MacDonald, the image which captures one of the most romantic moments from Scotland’s history, and reflects all the tradition and care that goes into baking every piece of Walkers shortbread.

The quality and natural goodness of Walkers has attracted many international awards, including five gold Mondiale medals and the Food from Britain Innovation Award.

While Joseph's children and grandchildren have moved with the times, they have always remained true to his original ideal - and his original recipe. So, when the family opened a new factory at Elgin to produce their popular new range of shortbread cookies and biscuits, they naturally still insisted on using only the finest ingredients: plump fruits, aromatic spices, chunks of real chocolate and flavorsome nuts. And there's not an artificial flavoring, coloring or preservative in sight. Just as Joseph Walker guaranteed all those years ago.

Today, Joseph would be proud to know that his great grandchildren are carrying on the family tradition and are now the fourth generation of Walkers to make 'The world's classic pure butter shortbread'.

I have ordered this cake three times in the past 15 months. We love marzipan and this cake epitomizes great preparation, presentation and proportion of marzipan. We do not care for traditional fruitcake, but this cake is very different. It's abundance of delicious high-end fruits and moist cake make it taste out-of-the-ordinary. Try it, you will not be disappointed.
Amazon offers the most competitive pricing, when you order it directly from them, not a MarketPlace vendor. We found out that we have to watch our carbs (sugar, etc.) intake. so we don't order it as often as we would like.

...once you have a taste for this iced fruit cake it's hard to stop buying it. The icing is not thick, perhaps a 3/32 of an inch, though the marzipan is at least 1/2 inch. It was one of the seasons highlights when my mother made chrismas cake, though the other way around, thick icing and thinner marzipan...but even so this cake is delicious, and the marzipan/icing combination is such a strong flavor it doesn't appear to matter what the ratio is.... As children though, (in england) we loved to pry off the icing which, after sitting for at least a month in our outdoor refrigerator, a covered hole about 18 inches deep in the back garden, had by chrismas become rock hard, just as we liked it. And was perhaps one of the ways in which we were taught restraint. Those were the days.

I'm so glad Amazon didn't let me cancel my order! After placing my order for a 28oz cake for $40 I started getting buyers remorse. I read the reviews and felt even worse! I'm not sure if the comments about the size were for a smaller cake but this is NOT the size of a large muffin. It was expensive for the size but the cake was enough to give all 7 of us a good size piece with some leftover. It's very dense so you don't need a huge piece! It was moist and had a very good Glenfiddich flavor! Yes the majority of the cake were sultans but I think some people couldn't see the other fruit mixed in because the color was the same. I'm glad I purchased this for a special treat. I included a pic so you could compare the size to a standard coffee mug. Also took a pic of the inside. I don't want people to be scared off by the negative reviews.

I ordered this with a large multi-pack of Walker's Shortbread, and was quite surprised to find them both shipped inside the same (not large) box. That was my first clue that this was going to be smaller than the average fruit cake. The confirmation came when I opened it up...

Very fine packaging--I wanted to keep the box, but the wife quickly "recycled" it.

The Whiskey Cake itself is outstanding in both flavor and texture. It's not the absolute best manufactured "fruit cake" I've ever eaten, but it's certainly quite delicious. The sultanas and whiskey do a fantastic job keeping the cake moist, though you'll obviously want to keep it in a sealed container once opened.

For the price, it's a very reasonable value for a high-quality, delicious cake, whether considered a whiskey cake, fruit cake, or whatever. Certainly worth making a holiday tradition! And, as an added bonus, it's small enough to be easily re-gifted if it's not your sort of thing.

Okay: just in case you're not familiar, a whisky cake is basically a fruit cake with a good swig of whisky thrown in for flavour. That's what we get here. I think the term "shortbread" is just used as part of the "Walker's Shortbread" brand, because as far I noticed, there was nary a trace of anything even remotely like shortbread to be found.

As fruit cakes go, this one is defintiely top of the range. It's a great cake. I confess my own pallet is nowhere near refined enough to specifically identify Glenfiddich as the whisky used, but hey, yours may differ.

But yes, as fruit cakes go, this is definitely a five star one. No question. Hence the rating. On the other hand, it is also a very expensive one. If I were going to factor "value for money" into my rating, I'd probably knock it down to just four stars.

One final thought: the tin in which this cake is comes is a nice and enduring one, and the lid is not of the type that is damaged when removed. So hey, as an added bonus you also get something pretty in which to store buttons, loose change, or whathaveyou. If you're like me, the tin will still be around for many years after the cake is long gone.

Theo.

I love Waler fruit cakes, a bit of decadence for the holiday season. Full of flavor with the fruit and estra bit of sweetness with the marizapan icing creates a wonderful richness for the palate.

Exactly as it should be, not sure how they did it. However having English Christmas cake on a sunny Carolina day in the winter was wonderful. Americans are not in love with fruit cake, but the ex-pats were all over this

I know it may sound like an oxymoron, but this is a delicious fruitcake. Really dense and moist, I was pleasantly surprised by the high quality and complex flavor of the cake.

It's not super "chunky" like some traditional American fruitcakes are - in fact, the cake is pretty smooth with only little candied bits through it.

It is small, but for a small after dinner sweet for four people (perhaps served with a single malt?) it's perfect. Great to keep in the cupboard for unexpected company/visits!
