in partnership with Edinburgh Rugby
Edinburgh Rugby teammates John Barclay, Scotland Rugby Captain and Damien Hoyland, visited the Glen Moray Distillery in Elgin, Speyside and hand-picked the casks that were used to produce the limited edition run of 312 individually numbered bottles.
Glen Moray will be contributing 100% of the profits of the sale of the limited-edition bottles to the rugby charity, Hearts and Balls, which supports rugby players and their families in the aftermath of injury on the field.
Back in January, the Elgin based distillery announced a three year partnership with Edinburgh Rugby, to be its official whisky sponsor.
Commenting on the launch, Graham Coull, Glen Moray Master Distiller says: “As you would expect from two talented and dedicated rugby players, John and Damien threw themselves wholeheartedly into the cask selection process. It was never going to be easy for a Flanker and a Winger to agree on anything but we persevered, and after several attempts, we agreed on a wonderful 2004 Glen Moray finished in a Chardonnay wine cask.”
Glen Moray Edinburgh Rugby Single Cask Private Edition, is now available exclusivley from glenmoray.com for a RRP of £100.00.
