Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve
Glasstorm had the pleasure of again working with William Grant and Sons Ltd to produce a very special bottle of whisky to honour a very special lady. The Glenfiddich Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve – one of the rarest single malt Scotch whiskies ever distilled at the Dufftown distillery was created to celebrate her 110th birthday. Mrs Roberts is William Grant’s granddaughter and also the oldest living person in Scotland.
Each of the beautiful hand blown bottles has 24ct Gold adorning its neck and front. The stopper which consists of an aquamarine Cloisonné medallion monogrammed in gold with Mrs Roberts initials was made by Thomas Fattorini’s.
There are only 15 of these bottles in the world. 11 bottles, one for every decade of Mrs Roberts life, are to be auctioned off with the remaining 4 staying in the family. The first auction took place at Bonham’s in Edinburgh on 14th December and became a world record breaker. Estimated to reach £30,000 the bottle actually sold for £46,850, the highest price a bottle of whisky has ever made at auction. All of the proceeds from the auction are going to WaterAid, a charity especially chosen by Glenfiddich. We at Glasstorm are proud to have been part of the process that helped raise such a large amount of money for such a worthy charity.
