A rare Vintage bottle of Highland Park Whisky which, in a lot with three lesser examples, achieved an impressive £2,783 stole the show at a recent Specialist Wine, Whisky and Port Sale at Staffordshire auction house Cuttlestones.

 
Whisky proved a particularly popular section of the catalogue, with 7 bottles of Glenlivet Unblended Scotch Whisky fetching £1,452. Ports also drew in the bids, with a single bottle of Warre’s Vintage Port, dated 1945, selling for £605 and the hammer falling at £1,694 on a lot comprising seven bottles of Cockburn’s Vintage Port from 1935.
 
The impressive wine section also saw some strong performances; not least a single bottle of 1953 Chateau Mouton Rothschild, for which bids reached £847.
 
MD and Head Auctioneer, Ben Gamble, said:
 
We’re really impressed with some of the prices achieved in this auction, both collectors and wine lovers were out in force, and it was a pleasure to work with Andrew from Old School Wines once again to host a specialist sale.”
