'The great warehouse collapse of 2010.'

"Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix commemorates a moment of drama in the long history of The Glenfiddich Distillery. It all began in December 2009 when it started to snow - it kept snowing for months. After weeks of record low temperatures and alternate freezing and thawing there were four feet of densely compacted snow on the distillery roofs.

On the evening of Thursday the 7th of January, in the most remote part of the snow covered distillery, some of our warehouse roofs collapsed, ripped open by the sheer weight of the snow, leaving maturing oak casks of Glenfiddich exposed to the winter sky. It was as if some of the distillery angels had finished their 'share' and had come back looking for more.

In all, 4 roofs collapse and several more were badly damaged. The distillery engineers calculated that there were 400 kilograms of snow on every square meter of warehouse roof - the equivalent of a herd of elephants standing on top of each warehouse.

The Glenfiddich Distillery tea, immediately swung in to action - working around the clock to clear snow from the distillery and neighbouring warehouses to make everything safe. Enduring temperatures as low as -19˚C they could only work for a few hours in the bitter cold before having to go indoors to thaw out.

I came to see the warehouses for myself and standing amongst the wreckage decided to create a special Glenfiddich whisky to mark this moment in the distillery's history and recognise the fantastic and difficult work carried out by the distillery team.

To create this whisky I selected the finest casks from the snow damaged warehouses - marrying together different ages of mature Glenfiddich - some very old. Some of these casks had previously held Oloroso sherry and others were traditional whisky casks made of American oak. Each one was specially chosen to make a unique contribution to the taste and aroma of the final whisky.

Aside from choosing and marrying these casks, this Glenfiddich is as we found it: a marriage of Glenfiddich single malt Scotch whiskies of different ages and finishes with the strength brought to 47.6% abv by the addition of the distillery's Robbie Dhu spring water. It has not been chill filtered.

We have called it Snow Phoenix - a great Glenfiddich Single Malt born of chance and adversity. It is a limited edition of a kind and will only be bottled in 2010."

Brian Kinsman - Glenfiddich Malt Master

This whisky was dedicated to the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team with a contribution of funds to ensure that they continue carrying out their great work in the heart of Speyside. 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.

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.
