Whisky collectors and connoisseurs on the lookout for rare whiskies will have the chance to bid on some of the most collectible Glenfiddich in existence thanks to an online auction hosted by Whisky Auctioneer.
From 12-16 November, more than 100 expressions documenting a bottled timeline of Glenfiddich’s whisky will feature in the auction.
With each bottle showcasing the distillery’s pioneering heritage, the sale will include an unprecedented selection of Rare Collection, Private Vintage and Vintage Reserve whiskies, alongside early examples of Glenfiddich’s Pure Malt and more recent Experimental Series range.
The Speyside distillery has been an important trailblazer in the whisky industry and helped to create the Single Malt Scotch category as we know it today.
This prescience is reflected by its status as the World’s Most Awarded Single Malt Scotch brand as well as one of the most sought after and collectible whiskies on the secondary market.
In addition to these extremely old and rare expressions that appear so infrequently at auction, the exclusive sale will offer whisky lovers the chance to explore more recent bottlings from the distillery that exemplify Glenfiddich’s progressive approach to whisky making.
Joe Wilson, head of auction content at Whisky Auctioneer, commented: “So many of these bottles have a story to tell, and taken together, provide a fascinating insight into this distillery’s pioneering journey.
"Glenfiddich expressions have long been an important and prominent feature of our regular auctions so it’s fantastic to now bring these exceptionally collectible bottles into one exclusive auction.
“After the incredible results of our Glenfiddich charity auction earlier this year, we are extremely excited to be able to share this collection with our international online community."
Struan Grant Ralph, global brand ambassador at Glenfiddich, said: “I’m hugely excited to see this incredible collection of Glenfiddich go under the hammer, as a collection such as this represents significant milestones not just for Glenfiddich but for the Single Malt category.
“This includes Special Pure Malt Glenfiddich bottled in the 1930s and our early partnerships with institutions such as La Grande Épicerie Paris and Concorde.
"It’s also exciting to see some of the oldest Glenfiddich bottlings ever brought to the market from as far back as the 1930s - these are life changing whiskies to drink and some of the most collectable bottles in existence.
"I wish everyone the best of luck bidding on this collection, I’ll certainly be keeping a keen eye on it too!”
The auction follows Whisky Auctioneer’s Glenfiddich Spirit of Speyside charity auction which took place earlier this year and raised over £240,000 for local Speyside causes affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Online bidding will begin on the Exclusive Glenfiddich Auction on Thursday 12 November and finish from 7pm (GMT) on Monday 16 November.
