The Master’s ‘Case for the 350’, auctioned in December, was acquired for £750 by one generous bidder. A big thank you, then, to our anonymous benefactor and we hope you enjoy ownership of the Case and, most importantly, it’s contents in the coming months!
The idea of the Master’s Case, from my year 2021-2022, was more than just about raising money for the Distiller’s Charity. Our charity partners, the Drinks Trust and the Alcohol Education Trust will specifically benefit from the money that was raised.
The Case and the collecting of the bottles during a year which saw our industry re-emerging from lockdowns and hospitality once again being open for business, gave us cause for celebration.
Visiting as many regions of the country as possible, meeting and speaking with the talented individuals and companies who produce and promote the products we so enjoy, seemed an obvious way for the Distiller’s support to the UK spirits industry.
I wish to thank again the 12 distilleries who donated the bottles for the Case which not only raised funds for our Charity but also highlighted the importance and value that we as a Livery attach to the relationship to the industry that the Worshipful Company of Distillers represents.
Thank you for all your support to me with the Masters Case for the 350.
