*Glenfiddich Experimental Series; #01 IPA Experiment

A fantastic opportunity to sample this brand new product from the malt masters over at Glenfiddich. In their first groundbreaking experiment, Glenfiddich’s Malt Master Brian Kinsman has proven that traditional whisky casks can still be seasoned in a pioneering way. Collaborating with a local Speyside craft brewer, Brian created a bold and zesty IPA beer to imbue the rich oak casks with extra hoppy notes. The experiment resulted in the first single malt Scotch whisky ever finished in craft IPA casks. Stop by the stand at The Beer Edit to taste Glenfiddich IPA Experiment alongside the beer that gave it its name!

This will be the only place to taste – Botanicale – the limited edition London Beer Week brewed by Aaron McClure from Sharp’s in collaboration with Tarquin (Southwestern Distillery) and Ali Dedianko (London Beer Week).

Or for the lucky few – there’s the chance to pop into the micro restaurant in a hidden corner of The Oval Space for a private dining experience from Zack Hawke, Head Chef of the Mariners, Rock.
