Springbank 25 years old - Frank McHardy 40 years in Distilling (R.P. $40,000)
The highlight of the evening was the Springbank 25 years old - Frank McHardy edition. The bottle itself is very rare to come across in the retail market, not only because of the limited production but this particular edition has a very special story behind.
Frank McHardy was the distillery manager of Springbank for 40 years. This release was dedicated for his service in the whisky industry. According to his interviews, Springbank is still his favourite distillery because of the quality, craftsmanship and traditions the distillers continue to put into the making of whiskies. Springbank is one of a hand-full of Scottish distilleries that still completes the full production in house.
