Summer Auction Sale of Vintage & Modern Wines & Spirits
Our Summer Sale is now catalogued and online.
After an enforced suspension, we are pleased to be able to offer a range of Wines and Spirits to restock after lockdown and some for the Collectors too.
As has become the norm, We kick off with Whisky and Spirits. We have a number of Early bottlings, some with spring caps, various limited Editions, some rarities like a Kinloch’s K22, a Glen Grant 49 year old distilled in 1956, a Castarede 1940 Armagnac, 2 Glen Flagler 8 year old Rare Malts, a John Jameson 15 year old & a Caroni 90 proof Navy Rum from Trinidad to name but a few. Entries also include some old and rare miniatures. We also have more modern bottlings of Whisky, Cognac, Armagnac, Gin, Vodka & Rum.
Next up a selection of Ports and fortified including some Taylor’s 1970 Vintage Port and some cigars! Followed by a selection of Champagnes, some old and some modern.
Last but by no means least, we have some fine quality Clarets by the case and a lot of modern Sauvignon Blancs and other wines, even Altar Wine amongst the 260 or so lots of a dozen bottles.
Whilst Restrictions will apply due to Covid19, we have some bottles available for tasting during the viewing & you may leave bids with a little more confidence. However this sale will be an online event with no crowded saleroom. You can follow the sale online & if you have the sound on, you can still hear the auctioneer. Then afterwards you can still come down to collect on the day or the following week.
Next Sale November 7th 2020.
Please note this sale will be held live on the internet. Whilst you can view as detailed above, we cannot allow bidding in person on the day*.
