William Grant & Sons announces the historic donation of three one-of-a-kind lots to the inaugural Distillers One of One charity auction which hopes to raise in excess of GBP 1,000,000 for Scottish charities. This leading rare whisky house, which combines Glenfiddich, The Balvenie and ‘lost gem’ distillery, Ladyburn, is providing a unique lot from each distillery to mark the launch of its Private Clients business.

As a founding partner to The Distillers One of One charity auction - formed by The Worshipful Company of Distillers – the William Grant & Sons Private Clients business will make a significant contribution to the combined auction sales. The lots, which have never before been made available, are expected to reach in excess of GBP 285,000 in total sales.

These are shown in this never-to-be-repeated selection of auction lots bringing together the most coveted liquids in six bottles, across three one-of-a-kind items created by the Private Clients division: Glenfiddich: The 1950s, Ladyburn 1966 David Bailey one-off John Lennon Edition and The Balvenie 1964 Single Bottle Release. Each represents a once-in-a-lifetime whisky acquisition from the 1950s and 1960s, which were famously pivotal decades in the world of Scotch whisky.

Beyond The Distillers’ One of One auction, the global Private Clients personal service will build direct-to-distillery client relationships by offering ongoing, tailored access to incredibly rare and precious family stocks. Rare whisky expressions, experiences and access to generations of knowledge and expertise will form the proposition.

The spirit of adventure

Charles Gordon, the great-grandson of the distiller’s founder William Grant, served in the Royal Navy from 1945 to 1948. Based out of Malta he served aboard HMS Sussex.
 

The last yacht he owned was the 39m (127.9ft) sailing yacht CINDERELLA IV, designed by Tripp, built by Dutch sailing yacht specialist Vitters using the most advanced carbon fibre technology of the day and delivered in 2009.

On a yacht capable of up to 300nm a day, Charles circumnavigated the globe in the 1990s and he completed his final transatlantic voyage in 2012.
