Sotheby’s will auction off the most valuable whiskey collection ever later this month, including over 460 bottles with an estimated value of nearly $5 million. It’s called the “Ultimate Whisky Collection” by the owner, which is a single owner who has remained anonymous with only a few quotes as clues to their identity.
“Having cherished these bottles, I am now ready to share them with collectors around the world. I hope they find good homes in the hands of whisky lovers who will enjoy the experience as much as I did,”Sotheby’s
The collection was over 20 years in the making when the owner decided to sell out. Online auction begins on September 27th with a simultaneous live event in London.
