Prince Harry enjoys Glenfiddich at South Pole

Prince Harry fought off the cold Antarctic air in a surprise Glenfiddich Scotch whisky tasting session on his journey to the South Pole.

Prince tasted the Glenfiddich Spirit of a Nation on his charity expedition to the South Pole

The prince is accompanying a team of wounded servicemen and women – called Team Glenfiddich – who set off on a race to the South pole last month in aid of the Walking with the Wounded charity.

Participants were surprised with a tasting of Glenfiddich’s Spirit of a Nation vintage reserve, a 29-year old single malt created by the brand in honour of the UK team competing in the Walking with the Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge.

The tasting was organised by agency Captive Minds to celebrate the teams’ approach to the last leg of the challenge, a 40-mile stretch leading to the South Pole.

Just 250 bottles of Spirit of a Nation have been produced, with 200 available to specialist and high-end on- and off-trade providers in the UK.

All proceeds of the £1,000 bottles will be donated to the Walking with the Wounded charity.

Sarah Harding, Glenfiddich senior brand manager, said: “Hand-selected by malt master, Brian Kinsman, Spirit of a Nation is an exceptional and extremely rare Glenfiddich, and a testament to the world’s most awarded single malt Scotch whisky.

“Releasing the special edition now is an ideal way to honour the courage and strength of Team Glenfiddich, and we’re proud to be donating the proceeds to Walking with the Wounded.”
