Whisky Advocate: A Century of American Whiskey Is Up For Auction

August 16, 2021

Scotland-based auction house Whisky Auctioneer has launched an online sale of some of the most rare American whiskeys ever put on the block. The 600-bottle auction includes 28 pre-Prohibition and Prohibition-era expressions. Consignments from two American collectors of around 200 bottles each comprise the backbone of the sale, which runs through August 23.

Highlights include early Van Winkle bottlings from Old Commonwealth Distillery, early A.H. Hirsch Reserve, Japan-exclusive Van Winkle releases, the legendary Twisted Spoke bottle, and one of the exclusive Van Winkle bottlings for the Corti Brothers—a true rarity. Whisky Advocate has the full story.—Jonny McCormick
