Marathon beer bottles are seeking new home….

Between them they have travelled to 39 military bases on a 3000-mile journey – and have the signatures to prove it – before making an appearance at the Highland Military Tattoo in Fort George.

If that is not enough for two very special bottles of Lossiemouth-produced ale, oneĀ travelled on every aircraft currently flown by the RAF’s Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, including the last serviceable Lancaster Bomber in the UK.

Now the humble if very special bottles of real ale, the very rare Wolf of Glen Moray limited edition, is to go to the lucky bidder who places an email bid to the Lossiemouth branch of the RAF Benevolent Fund.

The Wolf of Glen Moray was a limited edition batch of only 513 bottles, released just before Christmas 2013. The beer was aged in a freshly emptied whisky cask direct from the Glen Moray distillery.

It took the team at Windswept Brewing ten months to make it and it took justĀ one week to sell out completely. If you weren’t lucky enough to get a bottle, you can now bid on one of two very special bottles!

Bottle #39 was kindly donated by Windswept Brewing and has travelled around 39 MOD bases across the UK with the RAF Way Round on their recent 3,000 mile challenge.

Bottle #202 is a signed bottle and has flown in every type of aircraft flown by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, as well as taxing with the UK’s only other serviceable Lancaster, Just Jane, at Lincs Aviation Heritage Centre at East Kirkby.

Each bottle has proof of its travels – No 39 has a certificate and No 202 has a print from the kind people at the BBMF.

Anyone wishing to own either or both bottles has a final opportunity to bid by either email or send a postal bid. All proceeds from the silent auction will be going directly to the RAF Benevolent Fund.

Email bids (to arrive no later than 9am 10th November) should be sent to

Postal bids (to arrive no later than 9th Nov) Team RAFBF Lossiemouth c/o Windswept Brewing Co Unit B Coulardbank Industrial Estate, Lossiemouth, Moray IV31 6NG
