Whisky & Moutai | The World's Oldest Scotch 1 April 2023 • 2:00 PM HKT • Hong Kong

W e are delighted to present Whisky & Moutai | The World’s Oldest Scotch, which forms our 2023 Spring Season live Spirits auction in Hong Kong. Representing the highest estimated Whisky & Moutai auction that Sotheby’s has ever offered in Hong Kong, this auction is led by an extraordinary bottle of the oldest Scotch ever released, Macallan’s The Reach 81-Year-Old, and the celebrated Macallan Millennium Decanter 50-Year-Old. This is followed by an exceptional consignment of a further 78 lots from Macallan and 28 lots of Highland Park with brilliant provenance, with the majority having been sourced directly from the owner of these 2 historic brands, and containing a number of rare releases that never saw the open retail market and were only offered as limited editions within their global travel programmes. Beyond these distilleries, we find impeccable examples of the rarest Scotch whiskies including the likes of Dalmore’s 50-Year-Old Ceramic Decanter 1926, Bowmore 52-Year-Old and Johnnie Walker Master of Flavour 48-Year-Old.

Iconic Japanese whiskies include a full set of 36 bottles of Karuizawa depicting Katsushika Hokusai’s 36 views of Mount Fuji, a 10-bottle 30-Year-Old Karuizawa Samurai Series set, as well as multiple impeccable Karuizawa Thousand Arrows sets. Beyond this famed distiller, there are myriad pristine bottles from Hibiki, Hanyu Ichiro and Yamazaki.Last but not the least, 89 superb lots of Kweichow Moutai spanning 4 decades, from the 1980s to 2010s, are showcased, including limited editions such as the 2013 State Banquet Edition, 2015 Great Hall of The People Edition, and superb original releases from the 1980s and 1990s.
