‘Perfect’ whisky collection fetches £6.3m at auction
“One of the world’s largest private Scotch whisky collections has raised more than £6m at auction. The “Perfect Collection” of 3,900 rare bottles was amassed over decades by the late US bottling magnate Richard Gooding.
It included a Macallan 1926 Fine and Rare 60 Year Old, which fetched a hammer price of £1m.
Auctioneers Whisky Auctioneer said the collection raised a record amount for an auction dedicated to one collector. The online auction was held in two stages, with the first raising £3.2m last year. This week’s auction of the remaining 1,900 lots added a further £3.1m.”
