An absolutely unique bottling of Springbank to raise funds for a very worthwhile cause.This is a 17 year old Springbank, bottle no 1 of 1. Comes with a similarly labeled sample dram and a limited edition staff-signed old-labelling poster.

The lot is the annual charity effort involving Ralf Mitchel, global internet sensation from ralfy.com

Ralfy.com has become established in only three years as one of the most prominent, eccentric and original whisky sites on the internet, pioneering the dysfunctional but entertaining Vlog (Video Blog) format to opinion, educate, and simply share experienced whisky-stuff/reviews with anyone who is interested in Scotch whisky.

After very successful partnerships with Bladnoch Distillery in 2010 and Benromach Distillery in 2011, the theme of a Partnership Bottling for a specific Distillery-local Charity continues here in 2012 with that most iconic Craft Scotch Malt Distillery which we know as Springbank.

Springbank have donated a one-off hand-prepared and dated, manager-signed bottle of cask strength 17yo port matured single malt whisky along with a 20cl sampler and quality canvas limited edition staff-signed old-labelling poster. The bottle is the only one of its kind stating on the label "1 of 1" and as such is outstandingly unique for any Distillery to release.

Ralfy is adding to this package with a memory stick All-Vlog collection of videos relating to the auction along with a private Vlog for the fortunate buyer, plus handwritten tasting notes, a hand-made whisky dropper, and a yet-to-be-declared special addition!

He said: .scotchwhiskyauctions.com are, for a second year, presenting the auction free of commission and continue to enjoy a growing reputation as one of the Internet's best sources for rare and valuable whiskies. (You're making us blush, Ralfy)

"Show us your bids Malt-mates and let's raise all we can for Springbank's local Charity, an "allotment project" involving Campbeltown's Dalintober Primary School children. The school are using the produce grown on the allotment in the school canteen and any excess is then sold to staff and parents.

This project needs funds for a tool shed, assorted tools, seeds, fertilisers and protective clothing.

Thanks for looking at this auction."
