Bid for Wine’s managing director, Lionel Nierop, said: “The demand for old and collectible spirits is incredibly strong at present. We had bidders from Europe, the US and Asia all competing for these lots.

“Brandy, whisky and other fine spirits mark a natural progression from our current specialism in wine and we look forward to offering buyers and sellers access to some great sales in the future.”

The sale also marked the 12 month anniversary of Bid for Wine and Dreweatts’ partnership, which has, so far, turned over £1.6 million.
