Glenfiddich 2001 Blameless Charity Bottling

Glenfiddich was an early advocate of the single malt Scotch category, and their faith is rewarded today by being one of the best-selling Scotch brands in the world. The distillery was built by William Grant in 1886, distilling its first spirit on Christmas day the following year. Today it is still part of the family-owned, William Grant & Sons. They became the first distillery to actively market their single malt brand in 1963, and were the first to open their facility to visitors. Glenfiddich was an important trailblazer in the whisky industry, who's contribution cannot be forgotten. The scale of their operation today is a testament to this.

This 2017 charity bottling from Glenfiddich was drawn from the same cask as their Spirit of Speyside release from 2016. The remaining spirit in the second fill sherry butt after the bottling run was complete was re-racked into an American oak cask and further matured for an additional year. The 110 bottles were then sold to raise funds for the Blameless Charity.

This bottle is being sold from the Pat's Whisk(e)y private collection which, numbering in excess of 8,500 bottles, is the single largest collection of whisky ever to be brought to auction. Pat's Whisk(e)y is the result of over fifteen years of passion and dedication to the goal of creating one of the most complete libraries of whisky and whiskey ever amassed by an individual collector. It contains bottles from over 150 different Scottish distilleries, as well as bourbon, rare Scotch releases from sought-after independent bottlers in Europe, and whisky from other distilleries across the globe. Whisky Auctioneer is delighted to have partnered with Pat's Whisk(e)y to offer this collection across a number of exclusive and spotlight auctions. For more information, please click here.
