Christie’s Wine and Spirits Auction Results

Recently I mentioned the wine and spirits auction at Christie’s, which included the prized Bowmore Trilogy and other rare whiskies.  The results are in, and the buyers of these fine spirits have racked up quite a bar tab.

The Bowmore Trilogy led the way at more than $21,000, and a Macallan 55 year old in a Lalique crystal decanter, of which only 420 were produced, sold at over $13,000.  Meanwhile, a bottle of Redbreast 15 went for a modest $84, a number I’m more familiar with.  All whiskies auctioned off are listed below, complete with sale price.

Ardbeg 12 yr (OMC bottling) — $180
Auchentoshan 37 yr old — $240
Benrinnes 1989, Glen Garioch 24 yr old — $240

    I’d gladly pay $84 for some Redbreast… but the others might be a bit out of my league haha

    Man, wish I’d known sooner. I found this bottle of old grand dad in my grandfather’s liquor cabinet that must be at least 30 years old… I’m sure Christie’s would be interested in such fine booze 😉
