Glenfarclas & Hine 1953 - Auld Alliance
A show-stopping piece from Glenfarclas and Hine. Both bottles were distilled in 1953 with Glenfarclas spirit spending almost 60 years maturing in a Spanish sherry cask while Hine was matured for over 60 years in a French oak cask. The set was released in 2013 in time for the 60th anniversary and has been nicknamed 'The Auld Alliance'.
The bottles are each presented in a hand-made English oak obelisk by the Queen's cabinetmaker, N.E.J. Stevenson, with the faces of the drawers having been made from the casks each of these spirits were matured in. Only 125 of these outstanding sets were ever released.
