Sotheby’s showcases its first single-owner sale of iconic spirits that took decades to collect. This “Ultimate Whiskey Collection” includes 178 bottles from The Macallan Fine and Rare series, with a 60-year old Macallan 1926 from cask #263 serving as its centerpiece. There are only 40 bottles from that particular series and hasn’t been auctioned in over a decade.

The collection also has a 50-year-old Springbank 1919, 70-year-old G&M Generations bottlings of both Mortlach and Glenlivet, and a full set of Macallan Fine and Rare Miniature bottles. Both of these are offered in exclusively commissioned bespoke hand-made lockable cabinets that can be mounted on a wall.

Each cabinet was designed by British craftsman James Laycock, who constructed one with French polished Burr oak doors and a mahogany and walnut shelf interior to hold the miniature bottles.

Bidding at Sotheby’s begins on September 27 and the collection is estimated to go for well over $4 million USD.
