Rare whisky find could net £10,000 at Perth auction (August 2015)

11

A hidden stash of rare whisky will be the toast of a Perth auction house next week.

The 14 bottles of Glenfiddich Special Pure Malt, which remained hidden in the cellar of a Perthshire country house for more than 60 years, are expected to raise more than £10,000.

Auctioneer Nick Burns, of Lindsay Burns and Company, is hoping for intense interest from connoisseurs when they are sold on Wednesday, the second day of a two-day antique and fine art ale at the King Street auction house.

“Some people will want to buy a bottle to drink, some will see it as an investment,” Mr Burns said. “They are rare survivors, they come from the ’50s when Glenfiddich was one of the few malts available.”

The bottles — some of which are still wrapped in the original tissue paper they were sold in — will be auctioned singly and are expected to fetch £600 to £800 each.

Other whisky included in the sale includes two stoneware flagons, one marked David Leighton, Dundee, and the other The Dundee Supply Co Ltd, which, according to the labels, contain Glemhor 1937 (the pre-sale estimate for the two is £300 to £500) and two glass demijohns containing Glenlivet from a cask (£300 to £500).

For wine aficionados there are a number of lots to tickle the palate, including five bottles of Château Lafite-Rothschild 1952 which should sell for between £200 and £400.

The sale — which also includes clocks, furniture, silver, gold, paintings and items of Asian art — will take place live on the internet. The Chinese porcelain and works of art are expected to do well with buyers from the Far East continuing to buy back their heritage, pushing prices up.

Among British ceramics, items from the Wemyss pottery continue to be sought after and a Wemyss pottery cat decorated with shamrocks with glass eyes should make £600 to £800.

The lots are on view on Saturday from 9am to 2pm, Sunday from 1 to 3pm and on Monday from 9am to 5pm.
