Glenfiddich Experimental Series

Get your Glenfiddich Experimental Series - a new range that combines the brand's passion for pushing Scotch boundaries and collaborating with trailblazers from the whisky world and beyond and celebrate life. It was unveiled recently for the Indian market at The Qurum in Gurugram by Glenfiddich’s Global Brand Ambassador, Struan Grant Ralph along with the Glenfiddich Project XX. We got to taste them while listening to live music.

Created from collaborations with like-minded mavericks from a wide range of different industries, the Glenfiddich Experimental Series focuses on using unique and innovative production processes to offer a new kind of malt whisky experience. Glenfiddich Project XX follows the first malt released from the series, Glenfiddich IPA Experiment; a Glenfiddich single malt finished in IPA craft beer casks carefully selected by Brian Kinsman and a local Speyside craft brewer. The Glenfiddich IPA Experiment is the first in the series which will include a number of unexpected variants over time. Glenfiddich Project XX is the result of a collaboration between 20 whisky experts and Glenfiddich’s Malt Master, Brian Kinsman, who developed one unexpected, extraordinary whisky by bringing together 20 very special single malts.

Going against normal whisky making conventions, Brian invited 20 whisky experts from 16 countries around the world, to explore and each select a cask from a warehouse at the Glenfiddich Distillery in Dufftown. The experts have accumulated a wealth of whisky knowledge between them and spend their lives introducing single malts to whisky connoisseurs, enthusiasts and novices, imparting knowledge and information. Many of them are the foremost experts on Glenfiddich in their respective countries.

This freedom of choice resulted in a 20-strong collection of some of the most unusual whiskies from Glenfiddich’s unrivalled stocks, amassed and carefully nurtured throughout the brand’s 130-year history. After each expert had chosen a single cask of extraordinary liquid, from aged malts matured in port pipes to ancient sherry butts and first fill bourbon casks, Brian skillfully produced the final variant to reflect their individual tastes and interests. Expertly married together in a small batch vatting, the final liquid was exceptional – and a special tribute to each individual cask the malts came from
