Whisky Focus - Glenfiddich Spirit Of A Nation Whisky

Glenfiddich Spirit Of A Nation

8th July 2013
Glenfiddich Spirit of A Nation in support of the Walking With The Wounded charity.

We are all urged to get behind Team Glenfiddich as our nationís wounded prepare for a ground-breaking Antarctic race to raise funds for charity.

As part of their continued support for the military charity Walking With The Wounded, Glenfiddich will be taking a very special cask of their whisky across the UK for the Spirit of a Nation tour, giving whisky enthusiasts and supporters of Walking With The Wounded the rare opportunity to be a part of Glenfiddich history.

This special cask which contains an exclusive Glenfiddich 29 Year Old Single Malt Whisky expression which will be bottled as part of Glenfiddich's support for the Walking With The Wounded charity will be named "Glenfiddich Spirit of a Nation" and I have no doubt that this rare and exclusive whisky will be highly sought after by whisky collectors and connoisseurs.

Throughout 2013, the UKís most prestigious Scotch whisky brand will continue to honour William Grantís pioneering spirit by supporting Team Glenfiddich, the team flying the flag for Britain in the Walking With The Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge. This incredible project will see teams of wounded servicemen and women from the UK, alongside their team-mate and the expeditionís Royal Patron, Prince Harry, take on their American and Commonwealth counterparts in a race across Antarctica.

On Thursday 30th May 2013 the barrel was unveiled at the Walking With The Wounded annual fundraising ball, where it was signed by supporters of the charity including The Stereophonics, Ellie Goulding, TVís Ben Fogle and Olympian Matthew Pinsent, as well as the members of Team Glenfiddich.

"The Spirit of a Nation tour gives people around the UK the chance to personally wish the inspirational members of Team Glenfiddich well, ahead of their upcoming South Pole expedition. We would love for supporters to join us, meet the team and sign the limited edition cask." - Sarah Harding, Glenfiddich Senior Brand Manager

The Spirit of a Nation tour will travel to four locations around Britain, offering the opportunity for the whole of the United Kingdom to support the expedition by signing a message of good luck on the cask. At each destination it will be met by a member of Team Glenfiddich and a Glenfiddich ambassador who will jointly host a free evening open to everyone. The unique events will combine an inspirational talk by a wounded serviceman or woman with an intimate whisky tasting, suitable for experts and beginners alike.

After its UK tour, the signed cask will return to the Glenfiddich distillery in the Scottish Highlands, where its contents will be bottled. Glenfiddich will officially release the limited edition Spirit of a Nation expression in the UK in time for Christmas 2013. The first two bottles from the cask will be taken to the South Pole by Team Glenfiddich; one will be used to toast the successful expedition as the team reaches the Pole. The second will be photographed with and signed by the expedition party and later auctioned to raise funds for Walking With The Wounded.
