Rare hidden whisky could fetch £10,000 at auction (April 2015)


The fourteen bottles – some of which are still wrapped in the original tissue paper they were sold in – are valued from £600 to £800 and will each go under the hammer individually on Wednesday.

“Some people will want to buy a bottle to drink, some will see it as an investment,” Nick Burns, Lindsay Burns and Company, told The Courier.

“They are rare survivors, they come from the 50s when Glenfiddich was one of the few malts available.”

Other whisky lots include two stoneware flagons marked David Leighton, Dundee, and The Dundee Supply Co Ltd, which contain Glemhor 1937 estimated to reach between £300 and £500, and two glass demijohns with Glenlivet from a cask and valued at the same price.

Last month, a bottle of The Macallan Lalique 50 Year Old exceeded its pre-sale auction estimate and was sold for £21,250 in Edinburgh.

Meanwhile, in August last year auction house Bonhams cancelled its whisky auctions at its site in New York pending an evaluation of the “profitability” of whisky sales.
