We thought we’d give you a sneak preview of one of the bottles coming up in next week’s auction - for the simple reason that this is one of the most exciting bottles we’ve found all year and we couldn’t wait to tell you about it.
We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have a full run of United Distillers/Diageo Manager’s Drams in this month’s auction! The vendor was a long-term UD/Diageo employee and the set runs from 1988-2013, with all the familiar classic bottlings in place.
One of the greatest joys of being in the auction business is the unexpected finds that crop up along the way, often when you least expect them. These experiences are something that can never be taken for granted, which makes them all the sweeter when they arrive. The possibility always exists that the next stop we make on the road will deliver something extraordinary, and these unexpected moments are what keep auctioneering fun and make all our hard work worthwhile.
This ancient bottle of Pure Old Banff Malt Whisky 15-year-old was bottled by Mile End Distillery Company Ltd, a subsidiary of the Taylor Walker Brewery Co., who had bought a significant share of the distillery from the Simpson family in 1921.
