“It’s not often a whisky of this stature comes up at auction,” Martin Green, the whisky specialist at Bonhams, said before the sale. “The rarity and quality of the liquid, the exquisite bespoke packaging and the story behind its creation makes this a collectible that’s hard to value.”
Even the origin of the name is interesting. At 110 years old, Janet Sheed Roberts is Scotland's oldest living citizen. She lives next door to the distillery. She is part of the Grant family that founded Glenfiddich. If she's 110, and lives next to the distillery, then obviously we should all start drinking up single malts. For medicinal purposes.
