Icewine-Inspired Whiskys

Glenfiddich's 'Winter Storm' is Finished in Canadian Icewine Casks

— September 21, 2017 — Lifestyle
Following a trip to Canada's Peller Estate vineyards in Niagara and being inspired by the picking of grapes of night in low temperatures for the creation of icewine, Glenfiddich malt master Brian Kinsman started to create 'Winter Storm.'

Winter Storm is a new addition to Glenfiddich's Experimental Series and takes the form of a single malt whisky that is finished in French oak icewine casks. As a result, the taste of Winter Storm is said to have "tropical fruit and underlying wine notes" with the "warming soul of whisky and the frozen cold of icewine."

Glenfiddich's Winter Storm is set to be sold in a ceramic bottle and will be released in two limited batches. True to its Experimental Series, this one offers a unique exploration of the way different factors can augment the taste of a whisky.
Trend Themes
1. Icewine-inspired Whiskys - The use of icewine casks as a finishing element in whisky production, creating unique flavor profiles.
2. Experimental Series - Continued innovation in unique and unconventional whisky creations, pushing the limits of traditional whisky-making.
3. Limited Batches - Emphasis on exclusivity and scarcity in whisky releases, appealing to niche markets and connoisseurs.
Industry Implications
1. Whisky Production - Opportunities exist for whisky producers to experiment with unconventional finishing techniques and create exclusive, high-end releases.
2. Wine Production - Collaboration with whisky producers to offer icewine casks for finishing, opening a new market for wineries and expanding the use of icewine.
3. Luxury Goods - Appeal to niche markets and connoisseurs with limited-edition, exclusive whisky releases in unique packaging, focusing on the luxury aspect of these high-end products.
