The 92nd Auction

Filter by …


Well it’s nearly that time of year again and we’re all getting into the festive spirit here at SWA.

A massive welcome to our world record breaking 92nd Auction! This month you have the chance to fill your festive boots for we have just under 10000 lots to pick from! If you haven’t yet done all your Christmas shopping then not to worry as you are simply spoilt for choice here.

It’s always a tough choice to pick out a mere few malts to talk about - especially when there’s so many to choose from - however…

Our first tasty treat is a Yamazaki Age Unknown. Created to celebrate the life of Japan’s iconic businessman and arts patron Keizo Saji when he was awarded the Recipients of the Order of the Sacred Treasure medal, 1st Class in 1989. This extremely rare mysterious malt is rumoured to consist of Yamazaki’s hidden reserves which were distilled back in the 1960s meaning the whisky has matured for at least 25 years.

Talking of 1960s distillations, we’ve got a little treat from a well-known distillery up in Kirkwall. Not a stranger to SWA but worth a mention is our Highland Park 50 Year Old. Only 275 bottles were produced from a vatting of five rather special sherry casks. The jaw-droppingly beautiful bottle is wrapped in a handcrafted silver cage designed by Maeve Gillies, an internationally-renowned Scottish jewellery maker, which celebrates the influence of the sea, wild weather and the passage of time, all of which have helped shape this remarkable whisky. As this fantastic liquid is drunk, a truly stunning surprise is revealed... but you’ll have to find out what that is for yourself.

We always like a few oddballs here at SWA, first up is a Chichibu Ichiro's Malt from Blackadder. This is a 2010 6 Year Old and originally formed a duo with a 5 Year Old. A slightly rarer bottling from the chaps at Blackadder and something worth a mention.

Alternatively if you have tired yourself of malt already, then why not take a look at this extremely old bottling from the House of Hennessy. This brandy is from 1913!! Landed in the UK the following year and rumoured to be bottled in the 1950s by G. F. Grant & Co., this spirit has seen a lot!

Another piece of liquid history and perhaps something for the collectors is The Macallan 617 Squadron Disbandment Edition.This was limited to just 260 bottles and was released to commemorate the disbandandment of 617 Squadron in March 2014. The bottle features 10 of the Squadron’s battle honours including deployments during the Second World War.

Finally we continue with an exceptionally rare bottle of Macallan also celebrating a legacy of times gone by. This Macallan 48 Year Old was bottled in honour of The Savoy Hotel’s 125th Anniversary. Built in 1893 and renovated in 2010, The American Bar holds the title of oldest surviving cocktail bar in England and with that in mind each one of these 15 bottles comes with a polished piece of the original bar top! Marlene Dietrich, Claude Monet and Frank Sinatra have all sat there! Each Art Deco Decanter was designed by Glasstorm Scotland, no stranger to luxury whisky bottles.

Eat, drink, and be merry but… don’t lose your bottle!
