Looking for a present with a difference that you know will be appreciated this Christmas? Glengoyne might have the answer with a personalised bottle of its award-winning Single Highland Malt Scotch whisky.

With a personal label on the bottle of Glengoyne 10 Years Old, 17 Years Old, 21 years old or the 29 Years Old Family Reserve, you can create your very own message. This is one present you know won't be consigned to the back of the cupboard.

Fiona Richardson, Retail Manager at Glengoyne Distillery, said: "We are delighted how popular the individual personalised bottles have proved since we launched them last year. Demand is already very high and we are certain this will grow as we get closer to Christmas."

Prices are £29 for the 10-years-old, £40.99 for the 17-years-old, £51.99 for the 21-years-old and £150 for the 29-years-old.

And while we're on the subject of Christmas ...

Whisky connoisseurs looking to get their hands on a very impressive and extremely rare single malt can now purchase Macleod¹s Extremely Rare Glen Grant 1954 Over 50 Years.

Only 100 bottles of this prestigious single malt will be available worldwide and each will come presented in a beautiful, American solid oak wooden box, the interior of which is lined in Macleod Hunting Ancient tartan. Each box also has an individually engraved and numbered gold plate and hand carved Macleod coat of arms on the outside.

This truly special malt will make an outstanding gift or collector¹s item as it is presented in a branded gift box and each individual bottle has been numbered from 1 to 100 and each has an individually numbered neck tag too.

Also included in the gift box will be a certificate of authenticity, tasting notes prepared by our Rare Malt Manager and an exclusive invitation to taste the whisky. This is a great bonus for customers who want to sample the malt but are reluctant to open their own special bottle.

Iain Weir, Head of Marketing for Ian Macleod Distillers, whose portfolio includes Glengoyne, said: "We think this is a fantastic addition to our portfolio, the rarest of the rare, and we are confident that the 100 bottles are going to get snapped up very quickly. In fact we have already taken orders."

UK minimum RRP will be £2000.
