Glenfiddich bottle a special malt to mark 50th Piping Championship


To celebrate 50th edition of “The Glenfiddich” in 2023, The National Piping Centre are delighted to offer an exclusive, limited edition, Glenfiddich Single Cask, Single Malt 13 Year Old Whisky packaged in a bespoke display casket as part of the celebrations.

After half a century of continuous patronage from William Grant & Sons and the William Grant Foundation, the Glenfiddich name has become synonymous with the event itself. 

This special bottling from a single cask was selected by a panel including former Glenfiddich champions – a fitting memento of this remarkable milestone.

The bottle is encased in an elegant wooden case, made from old whisky casks, awakening the senses as you open the box.

The 13 year old single malt whisky has been bottled by hand, at cask strength, with no chill filtering to retain its full character. It is a golden colour, and a beautiful oaky sweetness on the nose with vibrant vanilla, ripe apple and pear notes. It has a silky smooth and sweet taste – the core fruity character of Glenfiddich has been carefully nurtured in this first fill bourbon barrel. 

This is a limited edition release of only 100 bottles, so secure your bottle to mark the 50th Edition of the world’s premier solo piping competition today!

The National Piping Centre launched the special whisky on their Facebook page on Friday with a tune from Willie McCallum in The National Piping Centre Auditorium, which can be seen here.

Bottles are available to purchase in store at The National Piping Centre McPhater Street and online. All online orders placed for postal delivery will be shipped from the week of the Glenfiddich Championship – 28th October 2023.

The bottle can be bought online from here
