Blended Whisky soll bei Auktion £16.000 einbringen

Eine Flasche Whisky wird bei einer Auktion in diesem Monat voraussichtlich für mehr als 16.000 Pfund versteigert werden. Der Johnnie Walker 1805 wird die erste Flasche dieses Blends sein, die in Europa zur Auktion kommt. Als der Whisky vor zwei Jahren hersgestellt wurde, ist er gleich zum Sammelobjekt geworden, da nur 200 Flaschen abgefüllt wurden. Er wurde kreiert zum 200. Jahrestag der Geburt von Firmengründer John Walker im Jahre 1805.

Blended whisky set to fetch £16,000 at auction

A BOTTLE of whisky is expected to sell for more than £16,000 when auctioned this month.

The Johnnie Walker 1805 blend will be the first of its kind in Europe to come up for auction.

The blend became an instant collectable when it was created two years ago, as only 200 bottles were made.

Charles MacLean, whisky consultant at the auctioneer Bonhams, said: ”

It was made from very fine whiskies at least 45 years old, mainly from closed distilleries.

“It is especially unusual for a blended whisky to attract such a high price as single malts tend to be more sought after. Collectors go for rarity and I am sure it will attract a lot of bids.

“Whisky is made for drinking, not collecting, and many will have been drunk already. Whoever buys it will have expensive taste.”

The blend was created to celebrate the 200th anniversary of company founder John Walker’s birth in 1805.

Each bottle has a gold bust of Walker and a copy of one of his handwritten notes attached. It comes in a handmade Victorian-style writing case.
