Limited-Edition Glenfiddich Sample: commemorative 26 Year Old whisky to mark COP26

let’s begin

Twenty six years ago, as the world gathered in Berlin for the first annual COP climate summit, Glenfiddich filled a single European oak cask with newly distilled spirit and set it aside to rest. To mark this year’s summit in its homeland, the rare and aged single malt Scotch whisky was been bottled exclusively to mark COP26 – a one of a kind Glenfiddich 26 Year Old whisky.

A small quantity of these exclusive, limited-edition bottles are being auctioned by Royal Mile Whiskies with all profits going directly to Stop Climate Chaos Scotland (registered charity number SCO39643) to continue its mission to create a greener future for Scotland. A true collector’s item, the bottles represent Glenfiddich’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, following the launch of its pioneering transport initiative, ‘Fuelled By Glenfiddich’ which reroutes production wastes and residues into Ultra-Clean Low Carbon fuel, now powering Glenfiddich’s transport fleet.

At 48.2% ABV, it has developed a colour of antique gold, with an aromatic and intriguing aroma bound to excite. The whisky has not been chill filtered which has helped retain a creamy texture with a complex, rich and spiced scent on the nose and dry spices with an interesting sweet/ savoury profile on the palate.To date, the whisky has only been tasted at COP26 itself, attended by world leaders and key global figures to mark this significant moment and critical time for climate change action.
