Rare & Collectable Whisky



Rare and collectable whiskies from some of the oldest and best distilleries, including whiskies from The Golden Era of whisky, the 1960s and 70s.

Perhaps the most exciting investments come from gems that can still be found at great prices, whiskies from the 60s and 70s! These whiskies from a Golden age can be outstanding even the blends are noticeably superior (often more Malt) to their contemporary counterparts.

The reason is varied, it was a time of less hurried production and there was direct firing of the stills. The types of barley like golden promise and other excellent long forgotten varieties where prevalent. Superior Sherry casks also contributed and onsite floor malting all added to a bygone area.

So, go hunt for 60s and 70s like Bunnahabhain, Glendronach and Macallan don't forget blends like Haig buy some to invest and some to drink.
