Founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and schoolteacher, The Macallan was one of the first legally licensed distilleries in Scotland. Bottles from the collection of Californian retailer Wing Hop Fung come to auction in the upcoming Sotheby’s sale. Many of the available bottles were acquired directly from The Macallan, including vintages produced between 1937 and 1972. The auction also includes the oldest whisky ever released from The Macallan distillery, the Lalique Genesis Decanter, which was distilled in the 1940s and bottled in 2018 in a custom crystal decanter. The set is presented in a custom wooden case designed by Burgess Studio and handcrafted by NEJ Stevenson. Only 600 bottles were produced worldwide.
Up for bid is a complete seven-bottle Black Bowmore and Bowmore Trilogy set, for the first time being sold in a single lot. Peated Scotches from Ardbeg and Brora are available as well. The sale will also present spirits from outside Scotland, including Kentucky Bourbons from Buffalo Trace Distillery and several bottles from the Suntory distilleries in Japan. View any of these lots and register to bid on the Sotheby’s website.
