Winning bid: £95.00
Lot number: 080-1655

Built in 1896 and powered by a steam engine until 1969, Aultmore's whisky is primarily used for Dewar's White Label. Completely rebulit in the 1970s the faithful engine that once powered the distillery 365 days a year now sits in the distillery's reception.

This whisky has been aged in a square barrel originally designed by Captain Ross James Chapman to make transporting whisky at sea much easier. It also allows greater contact with the wood and apparently a reduction in the Angel's Share.

Age: 16 years old

Cask Type: Square barrel

Cask Number: 1

49% ABV / 70cl

Bottle number: 237

Please examine all images of the lot, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
