Glenlivet 1964 50 Year Old Winchester Collection With Matching Miniature 5cl
Lot number: 068-2650
Winning bid: £15,000
The first distillery to take out a licence after the Excise Act of 1823, the distillery was a favourite of King George IV who demanded nothing but Glenlivet during a visit to Edinburgh in 1821 - three years before it was legal! Glenlivet has given its name to the 'longest valley in Scotland', so called after several distilleries laid claim to the Glenlivet suffix to cash in on the distillery's sterling reputation. But only one can call itself The Glenlivet.
The Winchester Collection is a series of 50 year old bottlings from Glenlivet, named in honour of their Master Distiller, Alan Winchester. Limited to only 100 bottles, these ultra rare whiskies come presented in fantastic crystal decanters designed by Scottish glass artisans Glasstorm, and are sealed with a stopper made with stone from the Cairngorm mountain range.
Comes with matching mini.
