COP26 whisky will be auctioned for charities
Scotch Whisky Association will put up three bottles of limited blended Scotch whisky, created for the COP26 conference in Glasgow for auction. The organization has partnered with Whisky Auctioneer, and the profits from the sale of the bottles will be donated equally to three Scottish charities that focus on environmental protection - RSPB, Scottish Wildlife Trust and John Muir Trust.
Limited blended whisky COP26 was created by representatives of the Scottish whisky industry on the occasion of the 26th UN Conference in Glasgow in November. The edition bottled in this city is limited to 900 bottles, and the blend was made of whiskies from 26 Scottish distilleries, from five whisky regions of Scotland. The packaging of the whisky itself refers to the ecological theme of the conference - the stopper is made of recycled wood and cork dust, the label is made of by-products of the whisky production process, including barley, and the carton is made of 100% recycled cardboard.
During COP26, a limited edition of blended whisky was presented to delegates during conference events, incl. Opening Gala at the Kelvingrove Gallery, a Reception at the UK Government Office in Scotland, an Event at Edinburgh Castle and a Round Table Meeting. It is also presented to senior COP participants, including the US Climate Envoy John Kerry, His Highness Prince Charles and the UN Secretary General António Guterres.
The auction, where bottles can be purchased, will be held from November 26 to December 6 via the Whisky Auctioneer website. Registration for buyers is now open and can be accessed via https://whiskylink.co/Register-COP26
