Whisky Advocate: Sotheby’s Hollywood Ending Nets $2 Million In Sales

May 17, 2022

A time capsule of Scotch whisky destined for Hollywood A-listers helped Sotheby’s to stage its largest ever Scotch whisky auction on May 10. During the financial crash of 2008, an entrepreneur from southern California bought a shipping container of valuable bottles from a struggling U.S. whisky broker who had hoped to sell them to people in the movie industry. Instead, they went under the hammer in New York 14 years later as Sotheby’s auctioned the Hollywood Collection and Part 4 of the Three Continents Collection for a total hammer price of $2,034,100 (Sotheby’s pre-sale estimate was $1,481,750 – $2,063,050). Whisky Advocate has the full story.—Jonny McCormick
