This December's auction of Whisky & Spirits in Edinburgh features an impressive collection of bottlings from The Scotch Malt Whisky Society, including some very rare first editions from Glenfarclas (1.1) and Highland Park (4.1) which mark the establishment of the organisation back in 1983. These bottles represent a period of change in the Scotch whisky industry: a time when the rich and complex flavours of young, cask strength whiskies were only beginning to be discovered – a true piece of collecting history.
Few could have imagined how far The Scotch Malt Whisky Society would have come since its beginnings in 1983. Now with 26,000 members worldwide and arguably the largest independent bottler in the world, their reputation for fine single cask malt whisky is unparalleled. This reputation started with this iconic bottling 1.1, to those in the know, an 8 year old heavily sherried Glenfarclas. Now in 2019, they are currently releasing their 212th bottling from the distillery.
By 1984, following on from successful bottlings in 1983, The Scotch Malt Whisky Society released this, it's first Highland Park. One of the mainstays of the society's bottlings, with over 250 expressions from the distillery.
We are delighted to offer this impressive collection of Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottlings alongside an eclectic selection of bottles in our 4 December Whisky & Spirits auction in Edinburgh, including some vintages which date back to the early 20th century.
