This sensational Islay single malt was produced at the Bowmore distillery and is one of the most unique and sought after malts of generations.
On the 9th August 1980, Bowmore welcomed Her Majesty The Queen to the distillery, indeed the very first time the Queen had ever made a visit to working distillery in Scotland. To commemorate the historic occasion, a special cask was filled in the presence of Her Majesty and subsequently laid to rest in the legendary No. 1 Vaults.
After 21 years of magical Bowmore maturation, the cask was bottled in honour of the The Queen's Golden Jubilee in 2002.
The bottles were presented to Her Majesty the Queen, who chose to gift some to members of her staff and visiting dignitaries during her Golden Jubilee year. The Royal Family will on occasion release a bottle to raise funds for a charity of choice.
Yielded at a natural cask strength 51.1% ABV, this is one of just 648 individually hand-numbered bottles that comes in superb condition complete with original presentation case.
