Glenfiddich has released an exclusive limited edition whisky to raise funds for the Speyside community. The 400 bottles of Glenfiddich 2007 (Cask No. 25427) Spirit of Speyside 2020 have been hand-selected by Malt Master Brian Kinsman, and will be auctioned on whiskyauctioneer.com from Wednesday 17th to Monday 22nd June.

The proceeds will all go to local Speyside causes, as well as those most affected by Covid-19. Struan Grant Ralph, Glenfiddich Global Brand Ambassador, commented that “The local community has been at the heart of Glenfiddich since 1887 when William Grant opened our distillery in Dufftown. We hope the release of the Spirit of Speyside Distillery Edition 2020 is a fitting tribute to William Grant and his legacy in the Speyside community.”

The annual Spirit of Speyside Festival, which welcomes whisky enthusiasts from all over the world, has been cancelled in its 21st year due to Covid-19. Glenfiddich is determined to do its part for the community, and has highlighted three causes which will benefit from the auction: Moray Food Plus, who provide a variety of services to those either experiencing or at risk of food insecurity; Keirans Legacy, a local charity that facilitates hands-on training in life-threatening situations; and NHS Grampian, which is responsible for providing health and social care services to a population of over 500,000 people living in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray.

“We are honoured to work with Glenfiddich to bring this special charity bottling to auction”, said Iain McClune, Founder of Whisky Auctioneer. “There has never been a more important time to form partnerships to support those most in need in our communities. We thank the team at Glenfiddich for approaching us with this opportunity.”
