Glenfiddich raises over £150,000 for Ukraine


Glenfiddich Distillery raised more than £150,000 for the people of Ukraine after auctioning a release of 460 rare bottles.

The distillery partnered with Perth-based Whisky Auctioneer, who waived their selling fees and donated the 10% buyer’s commission, to offer the full 460-bottle allocation of “The Cooper’s Cask” Spirit of Speyside Edition 2022 in the online sale.

The total £152,153.10 proceeds from the auction is being donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.

Claudia Falcone, Glenfiddich’s global brand director, said: “We are so happy that this year’s Spirit of Speyside exclusive bottling has succeeded in raising such a significant sum of money for such an important cause.

“The Disasters Emergency Committee are doing invaluable work in the region, and we hope this contribution will assist in providing some relief to the families impacted by the conflict.”

In addition to the hammer prices, the total proceeds from the sale include more than £10,000 in buyers’ commissions donated to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
