Glenfiddich IPA

Reportedly set to become a permanent fixture of the Glenfiddich stable is this beer cask-finished malt. Glenfiddich IPA Experiment is a no-age-statement whisky that's been finished for three months in casks previously used to brew a bespoke IPA created by the Speyside Craft Brewery in Forres. The ale employed British Challenger hops for added fruitiness, which were deemed an appropriate complement Glenfiddich's existing fruity character.

Glenfiddich Master of Malts, Brian Kinsman comments, "The result is a liquid with a zesty citrus note followed by soft, sweet vanilla and a hint of fresh hops. The innovative flavour comes from carefully hand-selecting the right malt whiskies to complement the extra hoppy notes."

Sud Polaire

Sud Polaire Antarctic Dry Gin (Domaine Simha)

A small batch series gin from Tasmanian wine producer Domaine Simha.

Their triple-distilled grape spirit is infused with organic botanicals and cut with Tasmanian rainwater which, in their own words, is "swept across a vast expanse of Southern ocean over polar ice from Antarctica; the coldest, driest, windiest place on earth".

 There's mint, grapefruit and blood orange. It's quite European in style, the clarity is king here.
