Bowmore 1980 Queen's Cask 21 Year Old / Golden Jubilee
A fantastically rare bottling of Bowmore single malt, from Islay's oldest operating distillery and generously donated by Beam Suntory to raise funds for the Beatson Cancer Charity.
Bottled from the Queen's Cask, a sherry butt filled in 1980, to commemorate her Golden Jubilee in 2002. The Golden Jubilee celebrations mark the 50th year in a monarch's reign.
This is bottle 646 of just 648.
From Beam Suntory:
"In 1980 a cask of whisky was filled to commemorate Her Majesty the Queen's visit to Bowmore Distillery on the Isle of Islay. In 2002, Her Majesty requested that the cask was bottled to mark the Golden Jubilee. A select number of bottles were delivered to various Royal Palaces and a small few into the archive of Bowmore Distillery. To date only ten bottles have been seen at auction, making this one of the rarest and most collectable whiskies in the world."
