Our Summer Auction sale of Wines and Spirits has come around already.
Whilst not a large number of lots, we have some rare bottlings once again especially older Whisky. In particular we have some 1960’s Glenfiddich, Johnnie Walker Red Label and a Red Hackle. From about the 1980’s we have a Strathspey, more Glenfiddich, Bell’s, Johnnie Walker Blue Label, Chivas Royal Salute and an 18yr old. We have some limited edition promotional bottles and display stands from Arthur Bell Distillers unused from 1988 including Blair Athol, Dufftown, Inchgower, Bell’s Connoisseur and Bells Very Rare 21yr old. As well as some more modern Whisky and Rum we have a variety of novelties, minitaures and other finds.
Again we are lucky to have some vintage ports by Warres and a range of Champagne including vintage Dom Perignons, Louis Roederer Cristal, Mumm and others, 2 cases of Piper Heidsieck Rose Sauvage half bottles (ideal for picnics or mini celebrations?). We have some more Icewine sweet Dessert Wine from China and a few older fine wines to peruse including a Chateau Latour “Les Fort de Latour” 1981 Pauillac, a smaller range this time but boosted by a quantity of French table wine by the case.
