Whisky Exchange to sell £400k Macallan collection

21st November, 2016 by Arabella Mileham

The Whisky Exchange is to sell one of the largest collections of rare Macallan whiskies, which is valued at around £400,000.

The collection features more than a hundred bottles, and includes one from every year’s bottling between 1928 and 1997 along with several rare releases, such as the 1928 The Macallan 50 Year Old.

Singh said he had spend the last few years assembling what he described as the “finest stocks of old and rare Macallan single malt whisky in the world”.

“We’re delighted to finally offer such an array of Macallan vintages in a single place, to sell bottle by bottle,” he said. “Rare Macallan is the ultimate goal for many whisky enthusiasts and here they will have around 100 different bottlings to choose from at any one given time.”

The Whisky Exchange was founded in 1999 and now numbers around 4,0000 whiskies, including more than 3,000 single Scotch malts, 500 Cognacs and Armagnacs and more than 300 gins. It recently added the new Taiwanese malt Omar to its portfolio, a country it identified in its recent Drinks Trend Report as having a huge opportunity to capitalize on the the high demand, shrinking stocks, and increasing prices of Japanese whisky.

Last month, The Macallan released its latest single malt creation, the 12-year-old ‘Double Cask’, which the distillery said “united the worlds of its Sherry and Fine Oak ranges”, following shortly after the sixth and final expression from its Six Pillars Collection – a US$35,000, 65-year-old single malt whisky. The brand is a key plank in parent company Edrington’s 2020 strategy, which includes plans for a new distillery and brand home in Speyside, which is set to open in 2018.

In July, Edrington reported growth in both volume and value sales of The Macallan, despite “intense competitive activity” in Taiwan denting its volumes – but overall the company reported a fall in profits of £7 million in its end of year financial results.
