Two rare casks of Scotch whisky set to sell for seven-figure sum | The Sun

TWO rare casks of Scotch whisky are set to sell for up to £1.2million each.

Both are ghost casks of drams left over from two now closed distilleries.

One is a 1982 vintage from Brora, Sutherland, in the Scottish Highlands.

The other is from 1979 and Port Ellen on Islay.

They are up for auction on Tuesday at Sotheby’s in London with guides of £700,000 to £1.2million.

The sale is a team-up with drinks giant Diageo, which describes the casks as “the rarest and most valuable in existence”.
