Ex-chair of Macallan puts his collection under the hammer

Uncategorized

McTears in Glasgow have a few extra stories to tell about some of the single malts up for sale at their next whisky sale, as they are helping to auction off the collection of the man who used to run Macallan.

Allan Shiach was the chairman of Macallan-Glenlivet in 1996 when the distillery was bought out by the Edrington Group.

The 72 bottles from his collection which are up for sale include a 1951 expression as well as two bottles from 1946. The most highly prized of the lots though are two bottles from 1928 which have been conservatively estimated at £10,000 each.

The BBC’s website quotes Shiach as saying: “These whiskies are a slightly random selection of bottlings which particularly interested me in the marketing of the brand.”

“They have been kept at my home in Moray and now, realising they were too valuable to drink and too rare to replace, I decided to share the proceeds of the sale with a charity and to offer worldwide collectors an opportunity to enhance their inventory with some Macallan items not often seen.”
