David has very kindly donated something very special for our auction at the Shirt & Shorts draw on Friday 13th July.
It will be a 70cl bottle of Balvenie Single Malt Scotch Whisky drawn from a single cask from the warehouse in the Balvenie distillery.
The whisky will be taken from a cask filled in 1997 and at the original cask strength. This Balvenie whisky will be completely unique as it will be the ONLY bottle to be bottled from this cask. David will also sign the bottle.
We are hugely grateful to David for this and for anyone who has an interest in whisky this will be of massive interest.
