Glenfiddich Pure Special Malt

Glenfiddich-Pure-Special-MaltLeft forgotten in the cellar of a Scottish mansion for more than 60 year, 14 bottles of Glenfiddich Pure Special Malt were discovered earlier this year. The bottles, some of which were still wrapped in their original tissue paper, were valued between £600 and £800 each and estimated to fetch £10,000 at auction.

However, when the bottles went under the hammer they smashed the estimates and were bought for a total of £17,000. Speaking to The Courier newspaper, Lindsay Burns & Company’s auctioneer Nicky Burns said of the bottles: “They are rare survivors, they come from the 50s when Glenfiddich was one of the few malts available.”
