A new chapter of Glenfiddich history
The Experimental Series embodies our family philosophy of freedom and possibilities, to create a range of ground-breaking single malts.
This year sees the release of our first pioneering expression: The IPA Experiment. In collaboration with IPA craft beer expert, Seb Jones, we created an innovative new craft ale to finish our groundbreaking single malt. An achievement never seen before by our industry.
We’ve also released our second, most ambitious expression to date: Project XX. This unusual single malt combines the top picks of our warehouse from 20 industry experts, to create an exceptional single malt that exceeded expectations.
But we haven’t stopped there. Over the next few years, we’ll continue to experiment and push the boundaries of what can be achieved with our single malt whisky.

In our first groundbreaking experiment, Malt Master Brian Kinsman has proven that traditional whisky casks can be seasoned in an untraditional way. Collaborating with a local Speyside craft brewer, Brian created a bold and zesty IPA craft beer to imbue our rich oak casks with extra hoppy notes. The experiment resulted in the first single malt whisky ever finished in craft IPA casks.Great for: Gifting and sampling.

Our second experiment of the series took place privately at our Conval warehouse. Shrouded in secrecy, Malt Master Brian Kinsman invited 20 whisky experts from around the world to select any expression of their choosing from thousands of stacked casks. The final 20 chosen malts, matured in everything from port pipes to virgin bourbon barrels, have created an unusual, untraditional and unexpected whisky, one that has exceeded even our expectations.Great for: Sampling and gifting
