A new chapter of Glenfiddich history

Experimental Series

The Experimental Series embodies our family philosophy of freedom and possibilities,
to create a range of ground-breaking single malts.

Last year we released our first pioneering expression: The IPA Experiment.
In collaboration with a Speyside Craft Brewer, we created an innovative new craft ale
to finish our groundbreaking single malt. An achievement never seen before by our
industry.

We also launched our second expression: 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.

This year we unveiled our third expression: Winter Storm. Our most ambitious release
to date is aged for 21 years and finished in small batches of Ice wine casks
from Canada. A limited edition, when it’s gone it’s gone, just like the winter snow.

Over the next few years, we’ll continue to experiment and push the boundaries of what
can be achieved with our single malt whisky.

  1. Glenfiddich Winter Storm Single Malt Whisky

    For our third experiment, Malt Master Brian Kinsman travelled to Canada to meet a renowned winemaker in Niagara. There he learned how the grapes had to be picked by moonlight at -10˚C to produce the intensely sweet Icewine. Upon his return to the Glenfiddich Distillery Brian started experimenting with several French oak Icewine casks from the Canadian winery, filling them with different Glenfiddich aged malts for up to six months. Only the rarer whiskies, those aged for 21 years, could cope with the extra Icewine intensity.

  2. Glenfiddich IPA Experiment

    Glenfiddich IPA Experiment

    £45.00
    ABV 43%, 70CL

    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.

    Project XX

    £50.00

    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.
