Glenfiddich 50 Year Old

This famous bottling of Glenfiddich was bottled in 1991 and limited to an incredible 500 bottles. In the early 1990's one of these bottles officially became the most expensive bottle of whisky ever sold at auction selling for 99,999,999 Lira in an Italian charity auction.

The release was restricted to only nine casks laid down originally in the 1930s, one cask for each of William Grant's nine children who helped build Glenfiddich distillery in the 1880s.  After laying undisturbed, these nine casks were bottled on the 26th July 1991 and presented in a handmade oak box with a brass plaque.

Each bottle was signed by former Chairman Alexander Grant Gordon, who is also the great-grandson of the company's founder.

Bottle number 228 includes a certificate, stating that the owner of the bottle is to be appointed as a Freeman of Glenfiddich distillery.
