Glenfiddich releases 26-year-old whisky to commemorate COP26

The release is in partnership with Stop Climate Chaos Scotland

100 bottles of the special-release whisky will be available at a Royal Mile Whiskies charity auction (22 to 29 November), with proceeds going to Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, a diverse coalition of over 60 civil society organisations in Scotland campaigning together on climate change.

The partnership highlights initiatives like ‘Fuelled By Glenfiddich’, begun earlier this year, a ‘closed loop’ sustainable transport programme where Glenfiddich’s production waste and residue is converted into ultra-clean low-carbon fuel. This fuel is beginning to be introduced to some of its transport fleet.

The whisky was laid down in 1995, when the first COP climate summit took place in Berlin. COP26 attendees will have already had the chance to taste it during the summit, in tastings led by Glenfiddich Ambassador to Scotland, Mark Thomson.

Claudia Falcone, Glenfiddich’s global brand director, commented, “...It has taken more than a decade for Glenfiddich to become the first global spirits brand to process its production wastes and residues into biogas fuel to power some of its trucks. We’re honoured to support the wider sustainability agenda...”

Alistair Dutton, member of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland’s board, added, “We’re pleased to be working with Glenfiddich and hope this incredible whisky will raise funds to tackle the climate emergency. The proceeds from the Royal Mile Whiskies auction will help Stop Climate Chaos Scotland members in their work to create a greener future for Scotland.”
