Glenugie 1970 Gordon & MacPhail Rare Old Description

From their archives, world-leading malt whisky specialists Gordon & MacPhail have donated an exceptionally rare bottle of Glenugie that was made in 1970 - the same year Doddie was born!

This special Glenugie bottling was distilled in 1970 at the peak of the distillery’s success. Located in Peterhead, north of Aberdeen, Glenugie was once the most easterly distillery in Scotland and its whisky-makers were considered some of the best in the country. Unfortunately, as the story goes with many distilleries in the 1983 recession, Glenugie couldn’t escape closure and has been considered a silent distillery ever since.

Most whisky produced at Glenugie was used in blends, with single malt production considered a rarity, making this 1970 bottling a true one-off. It was bottled 42 years later in 2012 for Gordon & MacPhail’s prestigious Rare Old series. Although Glenugie isn’t the most widely-known name in whisky today, its bottlings are highly regarded among connoisseurs and are becoming increasingly scarce.

Are you a connoisseur? Keep this collectible cracker on your radar - you may never see one like it again...

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 Gordon & MacPhail.

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.
