Perth-based Whisky Auctioneer offer up a never before seen collection of incredible vintage whiskies – Scotch Whisky News

Perth-based Whisky Auctioneer offer up a never before seen collection of incredible vintage whiskies.

The rarest and oldest vintages from Scotland’s most sought after distilleries will go under the hammer in an exclusive online auction held by Whisky Auctioneer. (

The private collection, brought together over many years of devoted searching, consists of 104 iconic ‘dumpy’ bottlings released by Cadenhead’s. As Scotland’s oldest independent bottler, Cadenhead’s have long been known for releasing stunning whiskies but none more so than those from this range.

The entire collection has an estimated worth of over £100,000, with many of the individual bottles expected to fetch in excess of £2000.

Scotland’s most collectible distilleries, both open and closed, will feature in the auction. Amongst the lots on offer will be some incredible 1950s vintages, including examples from Talisker, Highland Park, Springbank and Mortlach. Accompanying these will be no less than six 1960s Bowmore and an extremely rare Ardbeg from 1965, which is one of only 20 released.

With the growing scarcity of vintage whisky many of these bottles have not appeared at auction in recent years. Examples such as a Rosebank 1966 and Glenlivet 1954, that not so long ago were making in the region of £200 at auction, are expected to make ten times this amount in today’s market, highlighting the current demand for bottles of this nature.

Commenting on the auction, Managing Director of Whisky Auctioneer Iain McClune said, ‘This is a truly stunning group of bottles, the like of which we have never seen together in one auction before. Examples from this bygone era of whisky production have become increasingly elusive in recent years, making them exceptionally desirable both to whisky enthusiasts and those looking to invest.’

Whisky Auctioneer specialises in auctioning fine, old, rare and collectible whisky. This exclusive one off auction will go live on Friday 6th October and run until Monday 16th October.
