The legendary Macallan Fine & Rare series goes on sale

With currency exchange rates rocketing and stock exchange instruments far from predictable, why not securely invest into rare and vintage whiskies?

The opportunity just presents itself with Sotheby’s putting up for auction the legendary Macallan Fine & Rare collection. The online auction is now open for bidding until 19 April and includes 30 amazing bottles. Distilled between 1937 and 1972, they are now being offered straight from their current owner, retailer Wing Hop Fung.

Some of the whiskies were bottled as early as before World War II with their age statements exceeding five decades. And while the series boasts premium bottles throughout, most coveted of the lot would be a 1945 Macallan Fine and Rare 56 Year Old. Matured in a sherry cask, this whisky is likely to hit between $38,000 and $50,000.

“It is not only an honor for Sotheby’s to bring these bottles to auction, but an exciting opportunity for any collector to be able to build and complete their own meaningful collection of The Macallan Fine & Rare,” said Jonny Fowle, Sotheby’s spirits specialist.

In addition to the Wing Hop Fung collection, Sotheby’s will be sending under the gavel a selection of other exceptional bottles, including the oldest whisky to ever have been released from The Macallan distillery. This unique bottle, known as The Macallan Lalique 72 Year Old Genesis Decanter, is a proof of the distiller’s highly scrupulous aging process and is likely to reach more than $120,000. A number of other remarkable whiskies could be grabbed at the auction, including Pappy Van Winkle, Colonel E.H. Taylor, Eagle Rare, Yamazaki, Karuizawa and more. Plus, last but not least, a bottle of The Macallan 50 Year Old in Lalique, 6 Pillars, First Edition with a top estimate of $95,000.
