Dear Càrn Mòr Society Members!
In Celebration of HM QUEEN ELIZABETH II 90th Birthday we present on June 10th, 2016, a day prior to the “Trooping of the Colour” in London, a special and unique bottling of a Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
The story: Gillespie & Partners buys a cask in Scotland containing single malt whisky.
On HM the Queen’s birthday, April 21st this Macduff single malt was distilled and exactly eight years later, today, the 21st of April 2016 this single malt whisky is bottled yielding a mere 312 bottles.
The label had to be approved by Lord Chamberlain’s office (see below an excerpt of the letter)
Dear Mr. Gillespie,
Thank you for your email with your proposed label to mark The Queen’s 90th birthday.
We would have no immediate objection to your proposal, based on the materials and explanation in your email. We are however unable to formally approve or endorse your proposal.
To enable manufacturers to mark Her Majesty’s 90th Birthday, the usual rules governing the commercial use of Royal Photographs and Insignia have been temporarily relaxed to allow their use on certain souvenirs.
