F&F Editions Table

Original 1991 Release

Bottles of the Original 1991 Release have been sold with a white cap and wooden box, white cap without box, black cap and wooden box, black cap and cardboard carton and black cap without any box or carton. Several whiskies are also available as miniatures. The following Editions Table demonstrates those that have been verified on the secondary market.

Though it is widely reported that the first edition of F&F was presented as white capped bottles in a wooden box, we have found no evidence of a white capped Craigellachie, Glenlossie, Rosebank or Speyburn. Similarly, we have seen instances of white capped bottles being sold at auction without a box and we are unsure if this is how they were released or if the boxes have simply been lost to time. We also note that several distilleries were sold or mothballed prior to the presentation of the black cap with cardboard carton. Should further evidence come to light requiring changes to this table we will amend it accordingly and we welcome your feedback.

Miniatures

Aberfeldy, Blair Athol and Clynelish were released as 5cl miniatures.

A 5cl bottling of Dufftown was released in 1993, though at 40% ABV rather than 43% and without a stated age.

1997 Limited Release

The 1997 Cask Strength Limited Release is available in numbered bottles in a cardboard carton. Bottles are sometimes sold at auction without carton, but we understand that all were originally released with carton. We do not know how many of each whisky was released, but have noted the highest numbering of each whisky we’ve found on the public secondary market. If you have further information please send us your feedback.

 

2001 Release

The 2001 Additional Release is available with a black cap and was never released with a box or carton. The release consists of Auchroisk 10 Years, Glen Elgin 12 Years, Glen Spey 12 Years and Strathmill 12 Years.

2019 Reserve Cask Private Collection

The 2019 Reserve Cask Private Collection consists of black capped bottles with double insignia charm presented with a wooden box. We have never seen this release on the open market.

 

Extended collection

There are various examples that use either the F&F labelling or liquid, but do not form part of the releases outlined above. Further information can be found on our Extended Collection page.
