A limited edition release commemorating a moment of drama in our history.

Creamy vanilla mixes with vibrant apple and pear, complemented by soft blossom.

Exceptionally long. Austere sherry notes mellow into satisfying sweetness.

Glenfiddich Snow

Twice a winter’s worth of snow…

In 2010, twice a winter’s worth of snow fell on our
warehouse roofs in just a few weeks. In the most
remote part of our Distillery, bearing the weight
of a herd of elephants, a few collapsed.

The bright winter sky poured in, and standing
amongst precious casks, our Malt Master was
inspired to mark this moment in history.

 

  • Dedicated to Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team

    Lives in danger in large areas of the Scottish Highlands are in the hands of these remarkable volunteers. Their camaraderie, dedication and professionalism saves many lives – from crashed aircraft passengers to lost children. We honour them with Snow Phoenix and with a special contribution to their continuing work.

  • Heavy Snow

    We’re used to extreme weather at our Distillery in Speyside. It was -19°c when four of our warehouse roofs dramatically collapsed. All at the Distillery worked around the clock to help clear the snow and save our precious casks.

  • Our Spring Preserved

    Even under extremely low temperatures, our Robbie Dhu spring water has never frozen. It provides a constant source of pure water running from the Conval Hills and is used at every stage of our whisky-making process.
