Scottish whisky producer The Dalmore has announced a one-of-one auction in partnership with Sotheby’s Hong Kong. The auction will feature just one lot, six rare whiskies produced by The Dalmore from across six decades. Overall, the collection carries an estimate in excess of $500,000 USD.

The oldest whisky in the collection dates back to 1951, and is dubbed the “Royal Spirit.” This is then followed by 1967’s “Expertly Composed Spirit” and 1979’s “Curating Exquisite Casks.” The final three whiskies in the collection are the “Unbroken Chain of Visionaries” from 1980, 1995’s “The Creation of an Icon,” and “Into the New Millennium,” which entered casks at two minutes past midnight on January 1, 2000, making it the first whisky of the millennium.

The Dalmore will then donate 15% of the auction price to the V&A Dundee, marking a four-year partnership between the whisky label and the museum. Kicking off the partnership, The Dalmore has also created a short film titled Decades in the Making featuring master distiller Richard Paterson and architect Kengo Kuma.

Announcing the auction, Paterson said:

“Over the past 50 years, I have kept a watchful eye over our superlative inventory of rare whiskies, giving them the guidance to mature and reach their full potential in the finest casks sourced from around the world. Each bottle marks a very special milestone and has a unique story to tell, which I hope the lucky collector will enjoy with those closest to them – if the last year has taught us anything, it is that life is to be enjoyed now.”

Watch the Decades in the Making short film below. The Dalmore Decades collection will be available via auction at Sotheby’s Hong Kong on October 8.
