50-Year-Old Scotch Makes Hotel Package A Hot Gift For One Lucky Dad
You can celebrate your whisky-loving Dad with a very luxe Father's Day package at the Mandarin Oriental in New York City. The hotel possesses one of only six bottles of the Glenfiddich 50 Year Old available in North America and one lucky Dad will receive this bottle of rare single malt scotch whisky as part of the Glenfiddich Getaway for Father's Day package.
The 50-year-aged version of Glenfiddich sells for around $16,000. The Glenfiddich 50 Year Old is limited to 500 individually numbered, hand-blown glass bottles with decoration in Scottish silver. The bottles are packaged in leather-bound cases, each accompanied by a book and a signed certificate. In order to qualify as a 50-year-old whisky it must sit in its barrel unmixed with any other malt for the entire time. Some of the liquor evaporates over time (the "angel's share") making aging particularly challenging.
The Glenfiddich Getaway for Father's Day adventure begins with Bentley transport from the airport to Mandarin Oriental. The lucky father will stay at in a Central Park View Suite with views of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline and will be presented with his own personal bottle of Glenfiddich 50 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky and a special gift from Glenfiddich. The package includes a special feast. Restaurant Asiate's Chef de Cuisine Brandon Kida will prepare a four-course Chef's Tasting dinner for two crafted to pair with Glenfiddich's 15, 18, 21 and 30 year old scotch marques. The package costs $33,100 and is June 1, 2010 - September 6, 2010. Because there is just one bottle there is just one package available.
