About The Auction
Our previous online auctions had nice themes running through the choice of casks – in one, we focused on the barley the whisky had been made from, and highlighted the distillery’s grain husbandry techniques. Another showcased whiskies that had been born on Scotland’s crinkly coastlines – influenced perhaps by the character of the shoreline they knew well.
This time, when facing the array of diverse casks of different styles from different distilleries – we felt as bewildered as children in a sweet shop, pockets jangling with loose change and a display of tempting fancies looming three times our height, and wall-to-wall in front of us.
And that’s our theme – pick ‘n’ mix. No matter how much you’d like to, you can’t buy every sweet in the shop, nor can you get every cask in the auction (you’d get sick to the stomach and spoil your dinner, in either case). Judicious care is required. Take your time to browse our selection, watch our experts give their online tasting notes, and make the choice of the cask that absolutely suits you.
