& Cane is inspired by the early innovation of Glenfiddich
Malt Master Brian Kinsman, who ran peated spirit through the
Glenfiddich stills for the first time in 2003, birthing the
concept. Fire & Cane boldly marries smoky whisky with non-peated

merging rich, sweet toffee with green fruit character, baked
apple, and toasted marshmallow with soft spice. Rum casks also
help balance the dryness of the liquid and drive sweetness.

- sourced from the Kelvin Cooperage in Louisville, Kentucky
- Fire & Cane is certified kosher.
