  • Glenfiddich IPA Cask / Experimental Series

    Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    70cl / 43%

    4 (52 Reviews)

    Glenfiddich IPA Cask / Experimental Series

    One of the first pair of entries in the Glenfiddich Experimental Series – a whisky finished in casks seasoned with India Pale Ale. The Speyside Craft Brewery created a special beer which was aged in ex-Glenfiddich casks for a month before they were returned to the distillery and filled with whisky for a three-month finishing period. The result is a vibrant and fruity dram.
