Drink well, do good – Glenfiddich is releasing an exclusive limited edition whisky to raise funds to support the Speyside community, which is the heart of the world’s largest whisky producing region.
The world’s most awarded single malt Scotch whisky will produce 450 bottles of Glenfiddich 2007 (Cask No. 25427) Spirit of Speyside Distillery Edition 2020, hand-selected by Malt Master Brian Kinsman.
For the first time in its 21 year history, the Spirit of Speyside Festival has been cancelled due to Covid-19, a necessary step taken to protect the community.
However, just because we will be apart this year, doesn’t mean we aren’t still honouring the region we call home.
To show our support, we are releasing 450 bottles of Glenfiddich 2007 (Cask No. 25427) Spirit of Speyside Distillery Edition 2020. Hand-selected by our Malt Master Brian Kinsman, the bottles are being auctioned online on www.whiskyauctioneer.com from the 17th – 22nd June 2020, with 100% money raised from the auction going to local Speyside causes.
More details to follow. #SpiritOfSpeyside #glenfiddich

Only 450, 70cl bottles will be produced, each hand-numbered 1-450 and each signed by Brian Kinsman.
The Malt Master chose an amber liquid that has spent the last 13 years maturing in the darkness of Glenfiddich’s Warehouse 26. Finished in a sherry cask, Glenfiddich Spirit of Speyside Distillery Edition 2020 has been bottled at an intriguingly high strength of 65.7% ABV. Don’t let that fool you, though – the spirit boasts silky smooth and sweet tastes, with a rich citrus and cinnamon-infused apple fruitiness.
The Glenfiddich distillery in Dufftown, Scotland, is one of the reasons why tourists flock to said destination every year – and this indirectly supports hundreds of local businesses in the area. Many of those businesses have been severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, in some cases losing all of their business. This is where the funds from the auction come in.
100% of the revenue produced from the sale of this collectable whisky will go directly to help and support Speyside causes, particularly those most affected by the COVID-19 crisis.
Bottles will be auctioned on whiskyauctioneer.com from 17 June 2020 to 22 June 2020.
And should you need a little push to take part in this, know that a bid not only gives you the chance to own the rare bottle, but you’d also be contributing to preserve the whisky industry.
