Talisker Glacial Adventures

Talisker Glacial Edge 45-Year-Old is the final release in a series of adventures in wild whisky making. The whisky was aged over four decades, weathering many winters before being finished in ice-fractured oak, a new experiment in whisky craft and a first for Talisker.

A Glacial Voyage into Frozen Lands

The expedition to fracture the casks in Canada’s beautiful ice fields drew upon the majestic force of the glacier to create a whisky truly marked by the wild. This journey was taken hand in hand with Talisker’s partner Parley For the Oceans and led by pioneering glacier scientist Dr. Alison Criscitiello, alongside surfer Greg Long, and snowboarder Taylor Godber.

I have spent nearly my entire life immersed in the ocean and in that time I have come to realise just how intimately connected the mountains and ocean truly are. I am grateful to work on this project highlighting the beauty and fragility of both invaluable ecosystems.Greg Long, Big Wave Surfer and Activist

Preserving an Interconnected World

The team traversed across the wild terrain and into ice caves, where Dr. Criscitiello taught how the planet’s ecosystems are interconnected, from the glacial fields of Canada to the sea surrounding the distillery’s home on Skye. A portion of the funds from Talisker Glacial Edge 45-Year-Old will be donated to support raising awareness on the importance of the protection and preservation of marine ecosystems globally.


A Unique Tasting Experience in Iceland

To mark the launch of Talisker Glacial Edge 45-Year-Old, Talisker hosted an intrepid group of travellers including Greg Long on a glacial adventure in Iceland. During their trip, guests spent a day exploring the incredible natural beauty of the Langjökull Glacier, exploring the caves under the ice, abseiling and exploring crevasses in this natural wonder.

Inside the glacier, they learned how Talisker’s new whisky was made, and enjoyed a tasting of this wild whisky in the evening after returning from their day of adventure.
