- How rare do you like your single malt? #forjenn
If you can’t afford an auction bid and want to make a donation in memory of Jenn, the fundraising page is here:

I like this story, and I like the description of the whisky, and the look of the bottle. All of it in fact. I would love to be involved in a cask buy.
Unfortunately for me I imagine even the starting bid will be somewhat beyond my justifiable-to-the-family limits at the moment.Posted 7 months agojonnyboiMember
Jonnieboi, that’s awesome. If you donate I’ll make sure there’s a dram from one of my bottles waiting for you if you ever drop by the office
Just done. Apparently at the rate you drink I’d better call in before Halloween. So if I’m ever that way I’ll settle for a coffee.Posted 7 months agospeaker2animalsSubscriber
A great cause and I’m sure someone will make a humongous bid to win it. Pity there isn’t another spare bottle around. I wonder how much could be raised if a raffle was held, say at £25.00 per entry? I’d be very surprised if at least a hunded tickets weren’t sold (£2,500 for the mathematically challenged). Just a thought and as said a deserving cause.
Yes so, I’m a snowflake socialist, so hang me! 😂😂😂😂😂Posted 7 months ago
The raffle thing is complicated.
As far as we can tell the least we would need to do is register with the local authority to get legal permission. The fact alcohol is involved probably complicates things.
An auction is essentially a purchase, which is is still complicated where alcohol is involved so in this case we are technically giving a free thank you bottle to the largest donator to St Gemma’s. We are deliberately not touching the cash. The winner is making a direct donation so we are properly isolated from any transaction.
This is the best we can do right now with our limited resources. If anyone is an expert and can show us or help us do it better I can donate a bottle to the cause.Posted 7 months ago
Heh 🙂 Interestingly/worryingly it’s not stocked in any UK supermarket anymore!

Cheers, Will be enjoying it, but not for a few years. MrsTH and I will use it to celebrate either 10 or, perhaps more appropriately, 13 years or marriage. As we got married 2 months ago, you might have to wait a while for the tasting notes…
Seems I got a bargain though, as the bottle that was auctioned at the STW awards raised £1070, thanks to a syndicate involving most of the bike industry, led/encouraged/bullied by one Mr The Bikemonger…Posted 7 months ago
