The Art of Collecting Rare Whisky includes access to the three-part video masterclass with a guided tasting by Tod Bradbury, head of rare and collectable whiskies at fine wine and spirits merchants Justerini & Brooks. It also encompasses delivery of four whisky samples from Mortlach, Talisker, Johnnie Walker and The Cally, and a bespoke Smythson leather whisky tasting journal to record tasting notes.

Host Bradbury will share stories behind some of the best-known distilleries in Scotland and conversations with industry experts. He will show viewers how to start building and look after a collection, as well as what to search for and how to taste.

The masterclass comes in the wake of Sotheby’s record-breaking ‘Ultimate Whisky Collection’ auctions. It is billed as suitable for those who have already started their collecting journeys as well as beginners keen to learn more about the world of collecting, tasting, history and geography.

According to Bradbury, “The best place to start is to buy something you are happy to drink for the price you paid, as investments can go down as well as up! We are, of course, on hand to advise on our top picks.”

The Art of Collecting Rare Whisky masterclass will be available from end of October here and priced at £500.
