Very special Glenfarclas announcement

July 9th, 2008

For everyone who simply can’t afford to purchase a bottle of The Family Casks spanning 43 vintage from 1952 to 1994, I have a special treat for you. Glenfarclas is donating one bottle from each decade to our charity table at WhiskyFest San Francisco on October 10th.

For a small donation to charity, WhiskyFest San Francisco attendees will be able to taste a wee dram a Glenfarclas whisky from one of five different decades. Details on the specific vintages will follow.

This may be your only opportunity to taste one of these very special whiskies. This is an extra special treat for those of us in the U.S., given that The Family Casks whiskies were never sold in the U.S.  I am psyched!

    WOW!! Given the state of the economy, and not just here but abroad, as well as other obstacles that the distilleries are facing these days, this just speaks volumes as to the character of Glenfarclas!! We can only hope that other distilleries may follow suit down the road!! It certainly makes me wish that I could attend W/F San Francisco even more!!! Congratulations!!

    John – has it been decided what charities are going to benefit from these tastings? Whoever they are I am sure that they will be very pleased with the money that will be made that night.

    Tony, the idea is to twist your arm to get you to WhiskyFest San Francisco and enjoy this.

    Kevin, we are still researching the charities and will make an announcement shortly.
