Holyrood Distillery, Edinburgh’s first single malt distillery in almost a century, has partnered with Whisky Auctioneer to offer three “extra special” whisky casks up for charity auction.
Matured in ex-bourbon barrels, this is an excellent opportunity for whisky enthusiasts to get their hands on three rare casks as they are completely distinctive from Holyrood Distillery’s current ‘Made by Edinburgh’ cask programme, which is offered exclusively in a selection of sherry casks.
The casks will be auctioned by renowned spirits bidding platform Whisky Auctioneer with the auction running from Friday 28th May until Monday 7th June giving whisky lovers a unique opportunity to own a piece of Edinburgh whisky history: https://discover.whiskyauctioneer.com/holyrood-charity-auction
All proceeds from the sale of the casks will be split between Edinburgh charities Vintage Vibes, tackling social isolation in the community; Edinburgh Food Project, a local food bank charity; and The Drinks Trust’s covid relief fund for the hospitality industry.
Whisky Auctioneer has agreed to waive selling fees and will donate the 10% buyer’s commission to the total hammer price raised for the three charities. Each 200 litre cask will be filled with ‘Made by Edinburgh’ new make spirit, at an ABV of 60% and matured in a first-fill American ex-bourbon barrel.
