“EDISON, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–March 27, 2006–William Grant & Sons, Inc. announces the auction of the world’s oldest whisky, Glenfiddich Rare Collection 1937, on April 4, 2006 in Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal. As part of New York’s Tartan Week celebrations, a week-long series of activities highlighting Scottish culture and heritage, Glenfiddich has partnered with City Harvest, a noted New York-based charity, to auction one of the four remaining bottles of this exceptionally rare spirit.

A single cask yielded only 61 unique bottles of this exquisite Scotch whisky. Import laws required a special 750 mL bottle to be made; the item for auction is therefore the only 750 mL bottle of the Glenfiddich Rare Collection 1937 ever produced.”
