Glenfiddich launched a limited-edition whisky in Canadian Icewine casks last November.
The company says Glenfiddich Winter Storm is a short, crisp premium whisky imbued with a unique layer
of sweetness and complexity.
The company’s malt master, Brian Kinsman, came to Canada from Scotland to try out the idea of using Icewine casks. The idea came to him from the Canadian Brand Ambassador, Beth Havers.
Kinsman visited Peller Estate winery in Niagara, Ont. and went back to Scotland with several French oak Icewine casks from the winery.
The company says the result is “a perfect Glenfiddich 21 year old. The taste is a perfect combination of both pioneering liquids, the heightened candied sweets and oakiness of Glenfiddich are complemented by mouth-watering tropical fruit notes and underlying wine notes.”
Glenfiddich Winter Storm is priced at $349.95 at the LCBO and SAQ and across Canada in a white ceramic bottle. Quantities are limited.
