After 500 years of the game; 60 years ago a great New Zealander achieved something never done before; Robert Walter Charles became the 1st ever left-hander ever to win 1 of golf’s Major Championships.
To celebrate Sir Bob’s triumph in the 1963 British Open, we are releasing the 60 year Anniversary Bottling as a pre-sale price of $199.00, including a copy of Sir Bob's stunning biography (see www.bobcharlesbook.com ) with proceeds going to the Bob Charles Foundation.
Sir Bob Charles has personally chosen his whisky, from a selection presented by our Head Distiller Michael Byars. This delicious, rare single malt has been aged in NZ red wine casks and finished in smaller rye casks, for rich fruity flavours and nutty, spicey notes.
Once bottles and ready for deliveries in NOVEMBER 2023, the standard price will revert to $299. This superb Single Malt Whisky will be delivered to buyers for toasting the anniversary of another gritty, inspired victory of Sir Bob’s; the World Matchplay Championship at the end of October, 1969, (with an eagle on the 1st playoff hole), to defeat U.S Open Champion Gene Littler in London.
Sir Bob Charles remains the epitome of everything that we love about New Zealand; hard-working, talented, resilient and charming. Sir Bob, we salute you with our Left-Hand today!
