Jura30yo

Jura30yoJura distillery has added a 30 year old single malt whisky to its collection.

Called the Standing Stone, or ‘Camas an Staca’ in Gaelic, the new expression takes its name from the largest of Jura’s eight standing stones. Known as ‘The Bay of the Protecting Rocks’ this imposing 12 foot obelisk is reputedly all that remains of a stone circle laid some 3,000 years ago by the earliest Diurachs to appease the spirits.

The iconic Jura bottle is presented in a beautiful display case that opens its doors to showcase the bottle and reveal the story of the whisky. Meticulously detailed, the bottle is in-filled with copper wax, with a matching metal plaque.

Jura ‘Camus an Staca’ will be available for purchase in selected whisky stores across the world from December at RRP £350 per 70cl.

Whisky lovers expected to bid up to £150k to savour rare island malt

Bowmore 1957 wht bkgrnd MED

Bowmore 1957 wht bkgrnd MEDWHISKY lovers are never shy of spending a pretty penny for a drop of the finest amber nectar.

But even the most dedicated connoisseur might think twice about buying a dram of what is tipped to be the UK’s most expensive bottle of whisky.

A luxury bottle of rare whisky lovingly distilled over 54 years is going under the hammer in a city auction house next week with an estimated price tag of up to £150,000.

The cost of one nip would pay for a ticket on a luxury cruise liner – the bottle would buy you a house.

The Bowmore 1957, being sold at Bonhams on Queen Street, is tipped to break UK records as the most expensive bottle of whisky ever sold at auction – and experts believe it may even best the current world record.

At £3500 per dram, the exclusive whisky is beyond the finances of most 
collectors, but it is thought that there will be global interest in its sale from buyers as far afield as Europe, the Far East and the US.

A bottle of 64-year-old Macallan in Lalique glassware, sold at Sotheby’s in New York, holds the Guinness World Record for the dearest whisky ever sold at auction, fetching a staggering £291,125 in 2010.
