This year, we’ve partnered with The Point to Pinnacle – the world’s toughest road half marathon, to celebrate the race’s history, its exciting future, and to raise money for charity.
The first known race to the pinnacle dates back to 1903, was held in the middle of winter in 6 inches of snow, had 39 participants and was originally sponsored by the whisky company Watkins and Co. Race participants were rewarded with a glass of whisky at the pinnacle, before they ventured back down the mountain.
The modern-day race regularly boasts over 3000 participants of both runners and walkers, and will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2025.
On race day last year we donated a 50 Litre Tawny Port Cask to celebrate the upcoming anniversary, but this year, this cask will embark on the race itself as the first-ever barrel of whisky to attempt to complete the Point to Pinnacle.
But we need your help… Join us this November as we attempt to push this barrel to the pinnacle and raise money for charity.
Upon maturation of this cask in 2025, bottles of the Point to Pinnacle Single Malt Whisky will be auctioned with 100% of the proceeds going to charity.
In Good Spirits, the team at Overeem
