Rare lots up for grabs at whisky cask auction

Mulberry Bank Auctions preparing for latest whisky cask sale
Mulberry Bank Auctions is gearing up for its next cask sale, with some rare drams up for grabs.

The auction will take place on Wednesday, 26 February at the auction house's premises in Hillington near Glasgow. It will be Mulberry Bank's fifth cask sale and the biggest to date, with 27 lots going under the hammer.

The lots – which range from North British 2010s to Ben Nevis 1996 and Spring Bank 1993 – are expected to fetch between £2,000 and £60,000 a-piece.

Stewart Smith, of Mulberry Bank Auctions, said: "The auction will start at 2pm, which means that folk in America will hopefully be up, as well as folk in China. It was done to try and make the sale accessible to as many people as possible. We will be taking live commission bids, bids over the phone or bids online on two auction platforms."

Mulberry Bank held its first cask auction in September 2018 and the sales have gone from strength to strength. Ahead of its next sale, the auction house is holding a tasting event for interested parties to try before they buy, which will take place in Glasgow on Wednesday, 19 February.
