Ballot To Taste The Glengoyne 50 Year Old For Free

17th November 2020
In a world where rare whiskies are often collected to gather dust, Glengoyne has announced it will be opening a bottle and sharing it FOR FREE in 2021 with the winners of their Glengoyne 50 Year Old ballot.

I am sure most of you are just like me and rare drams such as the recently launched Glengoyne 50 Year Old at £22,500 a bottle is beyond your whisky budget and you can only dream of getting a chance to taste it.

Well if you would like a chance to taste the limited release Glengoyne 50 Year Old which is the oldest expression from the distillery to date your are in luck as Glengoyne are offering whisky lovers a unique opportunity to savour this rare whisky in 2021.

They have opened an online ballot for groups of five or more friends or family to submit an entry alongside a description of their perfect moment for savouring the Glengoyne 50 Year Old together next year. Whether itís toasting a delayed celebration, or creating an unforgettable reunion, the Glengoyne team will make their special moment a reality, hand-delivering the highly sought-after whisky for one group to enjoy and savour, in good company.

Entrants have until Monday 14th December to gather their groups and submit their moments via the Glengoyne website.

Robbie Hughes, Master Distiller at Glengoyne Highland Single Malt, said: "When we first filled hand-selected oak casks with our sweet, fruity, new make spirit back in the late 1960s, The Beatles were only just breaking up, Richard Nixon was US President, and Sesame Street debuted on television. A lot has changed while weíve been waiting patiently for this unique release.

"At Glengoyne we believe that patience is always rewarded. This year weíve all had to sacrifice spending time with our loved ones or delay celebrations. Thatís why we want to make these moments extra special in 2021 with a memorable whisky that, after waiting so long for just the right moment, is truly ready to be opened and savoured."

Glengoyne 50 Year Old comes in a special crystal decanter, which features an engraved goose emblem representing the geese who migrate to the Glen each winter. Hidden within the beautiful solid oak and gold display box is also a 25ml sample of the 50 Year Old whisky, as well as individually hand-numbered books which are hand-signed by Robbie Hughes, the Distillery Manager.

Available from next week, this extremely limited-edition release will join a new 30 Year Old Glengoyne and the present 25 Year Old whisky, as part of the distilleryís new 'Fine and Rare' range. Both whiskies are presented in beautiful glass bottles, with wooden embellishments and boxes that feature an industry-first second use, encouraging the drinker to personalise the box and remove the inner fitments, ready to cradle another keepsake once the whisky has been enjoyed to the last drop. The move comes as part of Glengoyne's wider commitment to sustainability.

The Glengoyne 50 Year Old alongside the new Glengoyne 30 Year Old and the outstanding Glengoyne 25 Year Old which I have had the pleasure of will be available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
