Sale Information

Macallan continues to dominate the field of collectable whiskies. A name synonymous with exceptional quality, the Speyside distillery has strived to create the finest single malts and since the 1980s has grown to be one of the top global whisky brands. This sale will include one of the most in-demand limited edition bottles of whisky, the Macallan Private Eye. Released in 1996 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the famous magazine, the edition consisted of 5,000 individually numbered bottles and is adorned with a label designed by cartoonist and illustrator Ralph Steadman.  This bottle (number 2281 of 5000) is being sold in the sale with an estimate of £2,500-3,000 plus buyer’s premium. 

Smaller distilleries are seeing a growing following of collectors, with whiskies such as Ardbeg and Bruichladdich now achieving almost cult status. Bruichladdich, which is based on Islay in the Hebrides, is growing a reputation for producing collectable cask-strength limited editions with attractive labelling. Relatively modest in price in comparison with the likes of Macallan, most bottles sell for around £100. The September auction, however, sees the sale of a Sherry Edition Series 2 Pedro Ximinez, distilled in 1992 and bottled in 2009, which is estimated to sell for £200-300 plus buyer’s premium.
