The 1927 bottle of Springbank is the star attraction in the McTear’s Winter Rare Whisky Sale on 3rd February and is expected to fetch between £4000 and £6000.
The rare dram, which was distilled by J. & A. Mitchell & Co. Ltd in 1900 and drawn in 1927, is one of 500 lots in the sale.
“You don’t find too many half bottles coming to auction but it is very rare indeed to find one of this quality,” says McTear’s whisky specialist Andrew Bell. “Springbank is an extremely collectable whisky and I am sure there will be a lot of interest in this outstanding example.”
