Macallan remains popular at Glasgow auction house! The Rare & Collectable Whisky Auction saw some fast and furious bidding from all across the globe as buyers battled it out to snag the best bottles on offer at auction. Local buyers competed with the international market, with strong competition coming from the USA and Japan in particular.

Stand out lots included the ubiquitous Black Bowmore. Lot 1172, the Black Bowmore 2nd Edition had a strong showing at auction, with a hammer price of £4,200, proving that this edition is still commanding premium prices at auction.

Lot 1086, The Macallan 1963 made £800 hammer, with lot 1096, The Macallan 1965 making a very respectable £800. The less often seen Macallan-Genlivet 1937 (lot 1155) reached a great price of £1,400 proving the enduring appeal of the brand.

Another star of the show was lot 1179, The Port Ellen 2nd Release. This 24 year old reached a great hammer price of £700 – vastly over the estimate.

With winter coming upon us, we are looking forward to warming ourselves over some fine drams as we prepare for the November auctions. Join us for the next The Rare & Collectable Whisky Auction where we will have a strong showing again from Macallan. In November, McTear’s will also hold The Wine Auction. To consign to either auction, please email or telephone 0141 810 2880.
