A bottle of the exceptional and highly prized Macallan 1940 50 Year Old Single Speyside Malt Scotch Whisky is the highlight of the sale, offered with an estimate of £12,000-18,000 (plus buyer’s premium). Macallan 50 year old is one of the most collectable of whiskies, which has dramatically increased in value over the last twenty years. The bottle contains whisky distilled on 1st January 1940 and laid down by Macallan for thirty years, before the cask was bought by independent bottlers Gordon and Macphail.
The fine wine in the sale is headed by a three-bottle celebration case of Krug Clos Du Mesnil Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne, on offer with an estimate of £5,000-7,000. It was released in 1998 to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Clos du Mesnil, perhaps the most famous vineyard in the Champagne region. Amongst an interesting and broad offering of other wines in the sale is a bottle of Grand Vin De Château Latour 1961 Pauillac-Medoc (estimate: £2,000-3,000), and two bottles of Château D’Yquem 1933 Lur-Saluces (estimate: £1,000-1,500). From private cellars, too, are good collector’s bottles by leading producers such as Château Latour and Château Du Pin.
