Charity whisky sells for £27,000

Islay

A special one-off bottle of Ardbeg has sold in an Edinburgh charity auction for £27,000.

The Ardbeg Aoibhinn, was a one-off bottle created by Glenmorangie and Ardbeg’s director of distilling and whisky creation, Dr Bill Lumsden, and selected by whisky writer Charles Maclean. It came in a bespoke decanter made by jewellery designer Maeve Gillies.

The whisky was one of the lots auctioned off at the St Columba’s Hospice Live Life Ball, which raised £400,000 for the charity, reports The Scotsman newspaper.

The newspaper’s site quoted the chair of the ball, Janice Gammell, as saying: “This is an amazing result and I speak for the committee when I say we have been humbled by the support we have received.

“Raising £400,000 is more than we ever imagined and it’s a privilege to know that thousands of people over the next 35 years of St Columba’s Hospice will benefit from one night of generosity and kindness.”
