Annandale Man O' Sword First Bottling - Doddie Weir Charity Bottle

* CHARITY BOTTLE - All the money raised from the sale and commission from these bottles are being donated to charities; the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation which raises funds to aid research into Motor Neurone Disease and Doddie Weir'5 Trust *

On December 1st 2014, Scotland and British & Irish Lions rugby legend, Doddie Weir filled the first cask of Annandale’s Man o’Sword peated Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Cask #2014 040). Accompanied by Finlay Calder and Gary Armstrong, two other rugby giants, Doddie returned on December 1st 2017, to fill the first 5 bottles of Annandale’s Man o’Sword from Cask #2014 040.

Doddie has recently been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. Inspired by his courage, Annandale Distillery has gifted Bottles 2 – 5 to the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation (Registered Charity No. SC047871) and to Doddie Weir’5 Trust. These rare bottles feature a silver-chrome collar engraved with Doddie’s signature, unique ‘Doddie Weir’s a Man o’Sword’ branding and each is presented in a bespoke, handcrafted box (by Cameron-Smith Designs, Kirkcudbright).

Bottle 5 is extra special because Weir played No.5 for Scotland. It is housed in a unique presentation box and paired-up with a replica Scotland No.5 rugby shirt signed by Doddie.

Just Whisky Auctions is proud to auction Bottles 2 -5 of this momentous whisky.
