Thirst for Rare Wine and Whisky Drives Surge in Auction Sales

13 February 2019

Highlights from Sotheby’s annual Wine Market Report.

“One name on the list that might surprise you is Macallan. Whisky only started being a big factor at Sotheby’s auctions in 2016. This year the average price was more than $15,000, helped along by another bottle with a big number: A 1926 Macallan with the Sir Peter Blake label sold in New York last fall for $843,200, the record for any spirit sold at auction in North America; bottles in Hong Kong and Edinburgh sold by Bonhams topped $1 million.

Sotheby’s is expecting the hot whisky market to grow further, so it’s no surprise that its first auction of 2019 would echo all the elements that helped make 2018 boom: a two-part sale of a meticulously stored single-owner cellar from Texas property developer and collector Marcus Hiles.

The live sale on March 9 features more than 250 lots of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, expected to go for more than $3 million. And an online-only counterpart leads with six decanters of the Macallan in Lalique Six Pillars collection, including one called the Peerless Spirit, with a high estimate of $90,000.”
