House Of Hazelwood & Linley One-Of-A-Kind Whisky Advent Calendar

Today, the House of Hazelwood, revered custodians of rare whisky, alongside the esteemed furniture craftsmen LINLEY, unveil their extraordinary whisky masterpiece: "Christmas at Hazelwood." This exceptional creation is set to be auctioned at the world's most prestigious and extensive charitable event, "The Distillers One of One" Auction, in partnership with Sotheby's on Thursday, October 5th, 2023.

Taking inspiration from the Gordon family's ancestral residence, Hazelwood House, and meticulously handcrafted from sycamore, walnut, and brass by LINLEY Design, the House of Hazelwood presents "Christmas at Hazelwood" (estimated value: £24,000). This architectural marvel takes the form of an Advent Calendar, with 24 numbered advent doors, each concealing a 50ml measure of every House of Hazelwood whisky released to date. Additionally, behind one of these doors, a full 70cl bottle of an exclusive 51 Year Old sherry cask matured blend awaits, destined to be opened and savoured on Christmas Day.

Behind these advent doors lie rare whiskies, including the very first distillates from Girvan distillery, the last remaining drops from several shuttered distilleries, and whisky styles that have faded into history, impossible to recreate today. Both the 70cl whisky bottle at the core of the box and the architectural masterpiece itself are one-of-a-kind creations available exclusively through the One of One auction.

The proceeds from this auction will be generously donated to The Distillers' Charity, primarily benefiting the Youth Action Fund, which is committed to enriching the lives of underprivileged young individuals in Scotland. The inaugural One of One auction in 2021 has already raised £2.4 million, positively impacting nearly 500 disadvantaged youth across Scotland.

Commenting on the auction, Jonathan Gibson, Director at House of Hazelwood, said: "Itís a privilege to be taking part in such a distinguished event. We have access to the greatest inventory of aged Scotch whisky anywhere in the world, so this is a great opportunity to showcase the breadth and depth of our collection. These are remarkable liquids set within a rare composition. A treasure to collect."

Although this creation is a truly unique offering for The Distillers' charitable auction, it's worth noting that the House of Hazelwood's whisky concierge service (reachable at
hello@houseofhazelwood.com) is at your disposal for crafting personalized commissions in collaboration with LINLEY. These tailor-made projects encompass distinctive architectural and advent boxes, each containing rare and exquisite whiskies, promising a bespoke experience like no other.

Commenting on the rare lot, Janet Jokat, Commercial Director from LINEY said: "We are delighted to have partnered with the House of Hazelwood in creating this bespoke one of a kind architectural Advent Calendar, showcasing the beautiful craftsmanship and artistry which LINLEY is famous for, and bring to life an incredible collaboration between two luxury brands with such a unique heritage".

The Distillers One of One auction will take place on Thursday 5th October at Hopetoun House and you can register to bid at
