Balvenie & Glenfiddich in "The Lincoln Lawyer"
The first sighting in this film was actually the inspiration for me to create this website. I was initially unable to discern what brand of scotch Mick Haller (Matthew McConaughey) was chugging here. Fortunately, a little later in the scene, the back of the bottle was displayed more prominently and I was (barely) able to make out the word "Balvenie" on the back label.
When I got home after the movie I searched online for other scotch sightings in movies or TV shows and found that there was a multitude of articles, Facebook pages, forums, and threads about whisky on film but there was no dedicated site.
The scene mentioned above takes place at the 49:30 mark in the film. It is unfortunate that Haller doesn't take the time to savour this sublime Speyside single malt but the dude clearly has a lot on his mind so I guess we can forgive him just this once. Here's the clip.
The second sighting takes place at the 54:40 mark and features a bottle of 18 year old Glenfiddich. Louis (Ryan Phillippe) has broken into Micks house and helped him self to his bottle of Glenfiddich. An offense which, if you ask me should be punishable by death.
Don't forget to keep up to date with Balvenie on Twitter here and here.
This was the only Twitter account I could find for Glenfiddich, so be sure to follow.
