Categories: Auction, Auction Results, Records

Whisky Auction Results January 2019 Our last auction ended with a hefty slew of impressive and interesting prices. Not least a Macallan Lalique 55-year-old second edition which crowned the auction off at £45,100. Not a record for this bottle but a sign of a significantly...

JULY AUCTION RESULTS 2018

Categories: Auction, Auction Results, Records

The last time we sold a Dalmore 50-year-old was in May 2017 when it fetched an impressive £18,600. Fifteen months later, last night, bottle number one finished up at £28,000 on the nose. At one time such a result would have been pretty staggering but it says a lot about the...

After an epic bidding battle that lasted over four hours past the scheduled finish, a cask of Macallan single malt whisky distilled in 1989 sold for an astounding £242,200 ($336,512) in our February auction. We reckon this is a world record for a cask of 1989 whisky! As...

September whisky auction results

Cast your mind back, if you will, to July and recall how we all gawped at two casks of 1993 Macallan upon which the hammer finally fell at £55,900 and £52,600. Madness we cried. Well, last night a similar pair of casks fetched £90,600 and £82,100 a piece (although Cask 2317...

An interesting set of lessons, trends and results from last night’s impressive auction. It’s been a while since a Cadenhead Dumpy topped the auction but it’s unsurprising in this case as that bottle was the extremely rare Laphroaig 1967 15-year-old sherry cask. From...

APRIL 2017 - Auction Results

After the Macallan bonanza which was last month’s sale, it was good to see the upper end of our latest auction populated by a wider variety of rarities and legendary bottlings. Certainly, legendary, is a word that applies to the front-runner: the Dalmore 50-year-old which...

If last night’s sale proved anything it is that, for the right bottles, Macallan is still the unassailable king at auction. The first edition Lalique 50-year-old finished up at a whopping £65,210. There’s been a lot of chatter about the charity sale of the full...

November Auction Results

Categories: Auction, Auction Results, Records

Another month and yet again the prices are still flying high. A weak pound is good for UK sellers but frustrating for those of us trying to buy. Whether this current upward trend will continue or maintain itself is yet to be seen. But if there is a re-balancing against the Euro...
