Littlemill 1990 25 Year Old Private Cellar 2015 Release Description

From their Private Cellar Edition series comes a 25-year-old bottling from Littlemill, Scotland’s Oldest Licensed Distillery. It is now a closed distillery, which once operated on the banks of the River Clyde in Bowling near Glasgow. Though its doors have been shut since 1994 (with most of the buildings now destroyed from a fire in 2004), Littlemill’s special releases allow us to taste their unique whisky!

This exceptional expression has been initially matured in 10 American and European oak casks, all chosen from between 1989 and 1990, before being married and finished in first-fill Oloroso Sherry casks. Fun fact: Doddie’s first cap for Scotland came in November 1990 against Argentina in Murrayfield! And the rest is history...

The 2015 edition is presented in a 70cl bottle and also comes with a 5cl miniature of the whisky (for a friend?!), as well as a section of a stave from one of the casks that matured the whisky!

Each winner of a bottle from Doddie's auction will receive two complimentary Glencairn glasses, branded with the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation logo (pictured on homepage)!

This bottle has been kindly donated by the Loch Lomond Group.

Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognizable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career.

Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.

In November 2017 Doddie and his Trustees launched the registered charity My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. Its aims are simple: to raise funds to aid research into the causes of Motor Neuron Disease and investigate potential cures; to make grants to individuals suffering from MND, to enable them to live as fulfilled a life as possible.
