Balvenie 15 Year Old Single Barrel 750ml
The richly layered Glenfiddich 15 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky is innovatively matured in three types of oak cask: sherry, bourbon and new oak, before being married in our unique, handcrafted Oregon pine Solera vat. Year on year, this Solera vat is never emptied but is always kept at least half full creating a deliciously harmonious and intense whisky which gets more complex and intriguing every year.
RETAIL $ 79.00

Glenfiddich 21 Year Old Gran Reserva 750ml

This exceptional Glenfiddich 21 Year Old single malt Scotch whisky is uniquely finished for up to four months in hand-selected bourbon barrels that once contained rum from the Caribbean, infusing this rare whisky with a rich and indulgent toffee sweetness. On the nose, rich aromas of fig, fudge and hints of ripe banana combine elegantly, while on the palate complex favours of vanilla toffee and spice intermingle with warm oak and the merest hint of smoke.
RETAIL $ 169.00

About St. Jude

Built on a Promise

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, is one of the world’s premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic diseases. St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. Children from all 50 states and from around the world have come through the doors of St. Jude for research and treatment, and thousands more around the world have benefited from the research conducted at St. Jude – research that is shared freely with the global community. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatments that are not covered by insurance. No child is denied treatment because of a family’s inability to pay.
