75 years old Scotch whisky avaiable at an online auction

At the turn of April and May 2020, Sotheby's Hong Kong auction house will conduct two large auctions of luxury wines and spirits, including the largest online auction of spirits held by this house, compromising as many as 130 lots. The offered bottles include very rare, unique whiskies, including The 50-year-old Karuizawa Aqua of Life 1968 and the oldest Scotch whisky available in retail - The Mortlach 75-Year-Old Gordon & Macphail Generations.

Oldest Scotch Whisky avaiable for sale

The auction, 'Distilled: whisky, moutai and more', will run from April 21 to May 5, 2020. Collectors from around the world can choose from a wide range of rare whiskies from Scotland and Japan. Fans of Chinese Maotai vodka should pay special attention to the selection of Kweichow Moutai from the 1980s and 1990s, including the very rare 1992 Flying Fairy Precious Moutai.

The conduct of online auctions was dictated by the postponement of Sotheby’s Hong Kong spring auctions from April to July 2020, due to the current COVID-19 situation. The good results of auction sales carried out over the last few months by Sotheby’s branches in New York and London have prompted the auction house to expand this form of sale to the Asian market as well. It is worth mentioning that Sotheby’s online sales increased even before the outbreak of the pandemic - in 2019, the auction house achieved $ 80 million online sales, up 55% more than last year, and 5 times more than 2017.
