During a snowstorm in January 2010, several of Glenfiddich’s warehouses collapsed under the weight of the snow. The hundreds of barrels maturing in the warehouses were exposed to temperatures as low as -19 degrees °C. Malt Master Brian Kinsman decided to blend a selection of these barrels to create Snow Phoenix, a one-of-a-kind whisky that symbolizes Glenfiddich’s pioneering spirit and perseverance. The casks used were Oloroso sherry and traditional American oak casks of different ages. Only 12000 bottles of Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix have been released. This bottle comes with the original tin gift box.
