Distilleries across the regions in Scotland came together throughout this summer to create an exclusive collection for a unique blend of Scotch Whiskies to raise money for the National Farmers Union’s Centenary Fund.
The distilleries across the regions of Scotland have donated bottles of their distinctive whiskies to be blended in a cask; the tour started from Auchroisk Distillery and finished on Friday 4th October at Dufftown’s iconic Glenfiddich Distillery passing through many distilleries including our lovely Tomintoul. Tomintoul distillery donated a Tomintoul 12YO Single Malt scotch whisky at cask strength. Proudly donating this Tomintoul 12YO cask sample is our Production Supervisor, Andrew Sim.
These whiskies will be creating a “Pillage Malt” to be left for a few months in cask to craft a unique and most likely impossible to re-create blend of Malt Scotch Whiskies. The cask will be bottled at the end of the year in preparation for the auction at the union’s annual meeting in February 2014 to raise money for the union’s Centenary Fund that is assisting schools and other farm-related initiatives across Scotland. This distinctive blend will be known as the “Banffshire Centenary Blended Malt”.
