Ben Nevis 1966 32 Year Old Forgotten Bottlings Description

Distilled at the Ben Nevis distillery in Fort William, this spectacular 32-year-old single malt was distilled in 1966 before being matured for over three decades, and was originally released for a customer in the US.

After lying forgotten in the warehouse, the stock was recently re-discovered and re-bottled into just 689 70cl bottles and released as part of their 'Forgotten Bottles' series. Each bottle has been individually numbered and comes at a cask strength of 50.5% abv.

This hidden gem was bottled in 1998, the same year Doddie won the Premiership Title with Newcastle Falcons. A tremendous triumph, Doddie recalls the night of the win as a night “full of cheers… and plenty of beers!” We bet!

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 Jim Robertson of the Ben Nevis Distillery.

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.
