GLEN BRETON 17 Year Old ICE
GLEN BRETON 10 Year Old ICE, Canadian single malt finished in ice wine casks! This ten year old whisky claims to be the first to use casks that previous help ice wine for maturation.
Canada’s Only Single Malt Whisky Distillery has aged 10 year old whisky in ice wine barrels from international award winning Jost Winery, Nova Scotia, producing a unique character all its own.
Glenora’s cask strength offering aged in ice wine barrels especially handcrafted for you.
Ice Wine is powerful in its own unique way, which is why Glenora tasted the whisky each day as it picked up trace hints of sweetness and fruit from the Ortega Ice Wine grapes. After 4 months we felt the ideal finish was achieved, leaving us with a truly unique whisky.
At the suggestion from a Glen Breton fan, Glenora approached Jost Vineyards, an award wining Nova Scotia winery, requesting to use one of their oak barrels once used for their Ortega Ice Wine to finish one of Glenora’s cask strength whiskies.
With the partnership in place the experiment began. Because ice wine is powerful in its own unique way Glenora tasted the whisky each day as it picked up trace hints of sweetness and fruit from the grape. After 4 months it was felt that the ideal finish was achieved.
