Tile IPA v2

Glenfiddich

IPA Experiment

ZESTY AND HOPPY
ABV 43%, 70CL

In the first experiment of its kind, Malt Master Brian Kinsman collaborated with Seb Jones, an entrepreneurial Speyside brewer, to create a new craft IPA and pioneer the way for a new kind of single malt Scotch whisky.

Brewed in bespoke craft IPA barrels, this single malt expression is imbued with unique zesty citrus notes of ripe green apple, William’s pear and spring blossom. Complemented by the subtle tang of fresh hops followed by a long lasting sweetness.

This malt is proof that remarkable feats can be achieved when great people get together.

  • Re-writing the rulebook. Again

    Many years ago, our Malt Master, David Stewart, realised that the traditional whisky making method could be pushed further and pioneered the process we now know as finishing. Today, we’ve taken it a step further and finished our India Pale Ale Cask with craft IPA beer, the first time this has been achieved in our industry.

  • A pioneering new malt

    To finish our India Pale Ale Cask we had to create a new craft beer. Working in collaboration with brewer Seb Jones, three new beers were created in total, ranging in strength. The winner was beer no. 2: the more traditional IPA craft beer, picked for it’s ability to imbue our oak casks with extra hoppy flavours.
