Glenfiddich Spirit Of A Nation 29 Year Old


14th November 2013
Glenfiddich Spirit of a Nation 29 year old  released to celebrate Glenfiddich’s sponsorship of the UK team in the Walking with the Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge.

You may recall that back in July this year I told you that Glenfiddich was urging us all to get behind Team Glenfiddich as our nation’s wounded prepare for a ground-breaking Antarctic race to raise funds for charity. As part of Glenfiddich's continued support for the military charity Walking With The Wounded, Glenfiddich took 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.

Well whisky enthusiasts will be pleased to hear that the special cask of Glenfiddich whisky has now been bottled to celebrate Glenfiddich’s sponsorship of the UK team in the Walking with the Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge.

The special limited release is named Glenfiddich Spirit of A Nation is a rare 29 year old expression which was originally filled to cask on the 14th February 1984, the Glenfiddich Scotch malt whisky first aged in a refill Sherry cask before being finished for three months in an American Oak cask.

Just 250 bottles of Spirit of a Nation have been produced, with 200 being released for sale from specialist whisky shops with a RRP of £1,000 per bottle.

Spirit of a Nation honours Team Glenfiddich, a group of four wounded servicemen and women who will depart the UK on 17th November and race to the South Pole to raise funds for Walking with the Wounded. Expedition Patron, Prince Harry will also take part in the challenge as a member of Team Glenfiddich.

Two bottles of Spirit of a Nation were presented to Team Glenfiddich before their expedition at a press conference today in London’s Trafalgar Square. One is to be opened on arrival to the South Pole, whilst the other will be signed by the team and returned to the UK for auction, with proceeds donated to the charity.
