Another Global Whisky Auction crossed off the board and it produced some pretty impressive results. We had some great bottlings from all over the Globe and some Bell’s decanters, for the purists! Here is a quick rundown of some of the bottles we thought lit up the seventh auction.
One of the star lots was the Bowmore 1965 Full Strength, having had a reserve price of £1300 this was quickly bid and eventually after some frantic last-minute bidding the bottle sold for £2161.
There were four dumpy bottlings from Cadenhead’s, each one achieving a great price. Firstly, we had two bottling from the closed Speyside distillery Pittyvaich. Both were bottles of 1977 distillation 13-year old’s, one achieved a price of £450 and the other £440. Next up was the Tomatin 13-year-old distilled in 1976 and bottled in 1990, this sold for £340. Lastly there was the 16-year-old Glenlivet, distilled in 1974 and bottled in 1990, this achieved a price of £340.
The recent release of Glendronach Kingsman attracted a great deal of interest. The whisky was a 1991 distillation bottled at 25 years old and was personally selected by Matthew Vaughn, the director of the recently released 'Kingsman: Golden Circle' film. With some quick bidding at the start of the auction the price rose to just above £800 within the first few days and by the close of the auction the price had settled on a very respectable £880 (a new record for the bottle). This bottle will be heading its way to a lucky collector in China very soon.
Our next auction kicks off on the 3rd November and we will be accepting bottles up until the 1st November. If you would like to sell a single bottle or a collection, please contact the Global Whisky Auctions team by email on firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0141 248 7283.
