In 1886, William Grant, along with the help of his nine children and a single stone mason, began construction of the Glenfiddich Distillery, situated in the Speyside region of Scotland. After a year of hard labor, the first drop of whisky fell from the distillery's copper-pot stills on Christmas Day 1887. Today, Grant's passion, determination and pioneering spirit continue to guide Glenfiddich Distillery, which is stewarded by the fifth generation of the Grant family.

Glenfiddich Single Malt Scotch is made exclusively from malted barley, which is milled and mashed with water sourced from Robbie Dhu spring. The crystal clear spring water, which is bottled directly at the source, is incredibly pure — the distillery purchased 1,200 acres around the spring decades ago in order to protect its unique water supply. After the barley has been mashed, it is fermented in wooden fermentation tanks made of Douglas Fir.

While wooden fermentation tanks are more expensive and difficult to maintain as compared to stainless steel tanks, they absorb a portion of the heat generated during fermentation, and thus, enable a slower and longer fermentation process. Following fermentation, the wash is twice-distilled through Glenfiddich's copper-pot stills (the distillery employs a craftsman onsite to tend to the stills, which are unique in shape and size) before the heart of the distillate is cut and prepared for maturation.

For this expression, Glenfiddich Malt Master Brian Kinsman traveled to Canada to pick grapes by moonlight at -10˚C. Kinsman met a renowned winemaker in Niagara, where he learned to produce an intensely sweet Icewine.

Upon his return to the Glenfiddich Distillery, the malt master began experimenting with several French oak Icewine casks from the Canadian winery, filling them with different Glenfiddich aged malts for up to six months. Only the rarest whiskies mingled well with the extra Icewine intensity. Winter Storm’s flavor profile is a perfect balance of both headstrong liquids, the heightened candied sweets and oakiness of Glenfiddich complementing by mouth-watering tropical fruit notes and a luscious sweetness from the unique Icewine cask finish.
