From Edrington-Beam Suntory UK:
"Donated by Edrington Beam Suntory UK, the sales, marketing and distribution joint venture of internationally renowned spirits companies – Edrington and Beam Suntory. We are thrilled to support the Beatson Cancer Charity by offering this beautiful and rare bottle of Auchentoshan 1966.
Great things were happening in 1966 that had nothing to do with football…especially in Glasgow. Expertly matured for 44 years in North American bourbon wood casks at Auchentoshan’s iconic distillery on the banks of the River Clyde, just 263 bottles of this exceptional liquid were produced. A whisky aficionado’s dream, sent to sleep in 1966 and lovingly drawn from the cask in 2011, this vintage, triple-distilled delight delivers all the hallmarks of the Glaswegian malt, famous for its smooth, yet gutsy, flavour profile.
Much like the city it grew up in, Auchentoshan – or ‘Auchie’ as it is affectionately known – prides itself on being aggressively welcoming. Showcased in a polished wood box with striking brush aluminium front and back, even the presentation of this immensely collectable whisky is anything but traditional."
