A rare 60-year-old bottling of Glen Grant single malt Scotch is being auctioned next month at the latest wine and spirits sale held by Dreweatts & Bloomsbury in London.
It was laid down in oloroso Sherry casks four days before Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1952 and bottled on 2 February 2012 to mark Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee.
The rare expression is bottled in a Glencairn decanter, topped with a Swarovski crystal stopper and packaged in a box made from Scottish elm sourced from Holyrood house. It comes with its own Harris Tweed bag.
Jack Chapman, wine specialist at Dreweatts & Bloomsbury, said: ‘Fine claret and outstanding whisky have always been my choices for when the nights close in, and this sale has some great opportunities to acquire both staples and sought-after rarities.’
