Rare whisky up for auction

Have your say

ONE of the world’s rarest whiskies is to go under the hammer in the Capital.

Two bottles of Bowmore’s 54-year-old will be auctioned in Edinburgh and New York by Bonhams, with the proceeds donated to charity.

The bottles, of which there are only 12 in the world, contain the oldest Bowmore ever produced, which also lays claim to being the oldest Islay single malt.

Andrew Rankin, Morrison Bowmore’s chief blender, said: “Bowmore 1957 has withstood the test of time astoundingly well and is nothing short of brilliance in a glass.”
