Glenfiddich Limited Edition "Snow Phoenix" Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1064089

SHIPPING ORDERS DO NOT INCLUDE THE TIN PACKAGING - we can ship it separately however for an extra fee. Snow Phoenix represents triumph in the face of disaster. ON January 7th 2010, following weeks of record snowfall, four of Glenfiddich's many warehouses collapsed under the unprecedented snow pack. Hundreds of casks were exposed to the blistering cold (-19°C) throughout the night. Malt Master Brian Kinsman, upon surveying the damaged immediately knew that something special could be salvaged from this disaster. Some very old and special casks were selected and married, including whisky as old as 30 years. This single malt whisky, having been all but been written off as spoiled, was reborn the Snow Phoenix. When photographs of the disaster were developed the Snow Phoenix symbolism became even more meaningful, a photo of the disaster is painted on the commemorative gift box. The casks represent some of Fiddich's finest whisky aged in both Oloroso Sherry as well as American Oak, hence an incredible value despite the lack of age statement. The myth goes that the extreme cold has revealed a whole new side to this classic single malt. You'll have to try it to find out. It is bottled non-chill filtered at 47.6%, and dedicated to the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team. - David Girard
