Win A Chance To Taste The Craigellachie 51 Year Old For Free

26th October 2018
Craigellachie gives whisky enthusiasts the chance to taste the new Craigellachie 51 year old single cask whisky for FREE!

Craigellachie 51 Year Old

51 year old whiskies are normally only obtainable by those with very deep pockets, they are normally presented in a fancy crystal decanter and have a very big price tag placing it way out of reach for most whisky enthusiasts. Well the latest expression from the Craigellachie distillery, the Craigellachie 51 Year Old single cask, single malt whisky is the oldest whisky ever released from the Speyside distillery, it is not bottled in a fancy crystal decanter and it doesn’t have a crazy price tag and what's more the distillery is offering all whisky enthusiasts the chance to taste the rare Craigellachie 51 year old whisky for FREE.

This whisky has been resting in oak for 51 years so Craigellachie believe that it doesn’t need to sit on a shelf for another 51 years collecting dust. so over the next 12 months Craigellachie 51, will be made available for whisky lovers at special tastings around the world, in four key markets.

Global Ambassador Georgie Bell commented on the FREE Craigellachie 51 giveaway, saying: "We wanted to do the unthinkable. We wanted to make a typically collectable Scotch more accessible."

Adding "We want to give as many people as we can, the chance to try this incredible whisky, because how often does a whisky of this age and calibre actually get tasted?"

Malt Master, Stephanie Macleod says of the liquid "51 years encased in oak is an extraordinary length of time. Starting life in 1962 as an aggressive beast, the whisky over five decades has developed a softer side yet still retains the distinct umami, muscular note that Craigellachie is known for."

From November 26th – November 28th, Craigellachie will host a tiny pop-up called Bar 51, a bar within a bar. Over three consecutive nights, this mini bar will be located in London’s oldest whisky shop, Milroy’s of Soho. Bar 51 will debut in London before travelling to Australia, South Africa and the U.S throughout the next year.

Reservations for Bar 51 go live at 9am on Monday 29th October, 150 tickets will be given away for free, chosen at random. For a chance to drink Craigellachie 51 for free simply register your interest at www.craigellachie.com/bar51

If you will not be lucky enough to be in London around these dates you can still explore the current Craigellachie whisky range, although sadly not for FREE, which you will find available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
