Christie’s to auction Balvenie Morgan Roadster

Chrisite’s is to put a bespoke Balvenie Morgan V8 Roadster and The Balvenie DCS Compendium Chapter 4 under the hammer at an online auction this month.

The tempting lot for whisky lovers and petrol heads, which has an estimate of US$100,000-$150,000, includes a tour of The Balvenie in Speyside.

The Balvenie DCS Compendium Chapter 4 is formed of five rare whiskies made by the world’s longest-serving malt master, David C. Stewart MBE.

Each chapter features five single cask single malts presented in a bespoke cherry wood and brass frame made by Scottish craftsman Sam Chinnery. The two-seater cream roadster meanwhile, boasts Balvenie branding on the headrest and interiors, and a V8 engine.

The auction begins at 10am on 25 September and closes at 10am on 9 October.

“This is the first time The Balvenie has participated in an auction of this nature, and we’re thrilled to join forces with Christie’s to offer these outstanding rare whiskies, bespoke Morgan roadster and distillery experience to collectors, whisky enthusiasts, and anyone who appreciates fine craftsmanship,” said The Balvenie’s brand director, Greg Levine.

“We’re honored to be working closely with The Balvenie and are delighted to bring this unique lot to sale. With an estimate of $100,000-$150,000, this is the highest value lot ever to be offered in this category for an online sale,” said Christie’s head of wine for the Americas, Chris Munro. 

“It’s an interesting lot for us, as it combines luxury handcrafted goods with a one-of-a-kind experience, making a lot that is already extremely exclusive even more enticing,” he added.

The lucky winning bidder will also be treated to a ‘behind-the-scenes’ tour of The Balvenie distillery in Speyside, where they will learn about how the brand’s single malts are crafted.

The Balvenie is the only distillery in the world that still grows its own barley, uses floor maltings and keeps coppersmiths and coopers on site.
