Craigellachie to give away 51YO whisky

Craigellachie is giving away a 51 Year Old whisky, that ordinarily would have become a rare collector’s item capable of commanding an lofty price tag, for free to whisky enthusiasts.

Over the next 12 months Craigellachie 51 will be made available for whisky lovers at special tastings around the world, in four key markets.

“We wanted to do the unthinkable,” said global ambassador Georgie Bell. “We wanted to make a typically collectable Scotch more accessible.”

“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?”

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.

Of the liquid, malt master, Stephanie Macleod, said: “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.”

Reservations for Bar 51 go live at 9am on Monday 29th October. 150 tickets will be given away for free, chosen at random.
