Sotheby’s Wine is pleased to unveil the full contents of our autumn 2018 auctions in New York. Led by The Macallan 1926 60 Year Old (Sir Peter Blake Label) as well as an historic offering of Rare Domaine de la Romanée-Conti Wines from the Personal Cellar of Robert Drouhin, the series of four auctions this September, October and November will offer wine and spirit enthusiasts an unmatched opportunity to acquire some of the world’s most sought-after wines and spirits.
The Macallan 1926 60 Year Old (Peter Blake Label) that is estimated to sell for 700,000/1.2 million dollars
Jamie Ritchie, Worldwide Head of Sotheby’s Wine, commented: “Our New York fall auctions offer a unique opportunity to buy the rarest wines and spirits, the stars of which have never previously appeared in Sotheby’s auctions, since our founding in 1744. The highest value lot of our sale series is The Macallan 1926, “60 Year Old”, Sir Peter Blake Label, which carries the highest estimate for any bottle of wine or whisky ever offered by Sotheby’s.
It already holds the record as the world’s most expensive spirit and we look forward to seeing if that record can be broken again. This exceptionally rare whisky is coming to auction during a particularly exciting moment in the market for whisky and spirits, as we have seen considerable demand for rare whiskies from both Asia and the United States. This market enthusiasm extends to the fine wine market and we have an October 13 sale dedicated to Rare Domaine de la Romanée-Conti from the Personal Cellar of Robert Drouhin, which presents collectors with the only opportunity to acquire some of the world’s most coveted wines, from the most celebrated wine producer, directly from Robert Drouhin’s personal cellar. Whether you’re an experienced collector or simply a wine enthusiast, this season’s New York wine auctions are a must-participate event.”
