Glen Breton Rare Single Malt 10 Year Old Ice Wine Finish...$85.99 57.2% abv
2021 Gold Medal Winner | New York International Spirits Competition
Gold and Silver Medal Winner at San Francisco World Spirits Competition
Glen Breton Ice is our single malt whisky finished in an ice wine barrel.
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.

2021 Gold Medal Winner | New York International Spirits Competition

The Glen Breton Rare 19-Year-Old forms part of our range which features a series of single malt whiskies matured exclusively in hand-picked American oak casks for richness and complexity.
