Glenfarclas, has announced the launch of a limited-edition Family Cask Trunk, which is believed to be the largest collection ever released by one distillery.

Following on from the hugely successful Family Cask collection, the Speyside based distillery has gone one step further by releasing The Glenfarclas Family Cask Trunk, which contains every vintage from 1954 to 2003.

The collection comes housed in a custom-made trunk, resembling a contemporary interpretation of a traditional shipping trunk. Inside sit fifty individual 200ml bottles of Glenfarclas single malt Scotch whisky.

The trunk also contains: 4 tumblers, 4 nosing glasses and a water jug (all crafted from crystal by renowned Scottish glass manufacturer Glencairn Crystal) 4 slate coasters, 3 hand printed and bound leather books - one containing the history of the distillery, another with George Grant's tasting notes for each vintage and the third with space for the buyer to write their own personal tasting notes.

Commenting on the launch, George Grant, Sales Director and 6th generation of the Grant family, said: "This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy a full collection of vintages in one complete set. It is the first - and last - chance to purchase this, as some of the vintages contained in the trunk are from the last casks of their respective years. We are thrilled to bring this ambitious project to fruition, one which could only be realised due to my grandfather's foresight in laying down casks as far back as the 1950s."

Limited to just 60 sets, The Glenfarclas Family Cask Trunk, will be available later this month, for a RRP of £100,000.
