Marking the company’s 100th auction, buyers have the chance to get their hands on some truly special whiskies going under the hammer, which include a 50 Year Old Macallan (Millennium Decanter) distilled in 1949, a 40 Year Old Brora (distilled in 1972) and a 1976 Single Cask Ardbeg.

Whisky Hammer has also bottled a limited-edition whisky in celebration of the milestone – with just 100 bottles available to bid on. The 11-Year-Old blended Scotch whisky is being bottled at 100 Proof (57.1% ABV) and all bottles will be individually hand numbered, with bids starting at £30 per bottle.

Now a go-to destination for buyers and sellers of rare and collectible whisky worldwide, Whisky Hammer is known for its previous high-profile sales including the record-breaking million-pound cask of Macallan whisky which lay forgotten for more than 30 years and a 55 Year Old Yamazaki which sold for £380,000.

As a thank you to customers for their support over the last eight years, successful bidders in the 100th auction will be entered into a prize draw to win a share of £10,000 worth of Still Spirit whisky vouchers – with 10 prizes in total and first place winning £5,000 to spend in the store. Each bottle won at auction will be the equivalent to one entry into the draw.

Daniel Milne, co-founder and managing director of Whisky Hammer and Still Spirit, said: “The response from customers looking to take part in our 100th auction has been incredible. Our entire team have been inundated with an impressive array of stand-out whiskies, some of which are rare, unique and hard to come by.

“We’re giving successful bidders the chance to win a share of £10,000 worth of whisky in our prize draw. This is just a small token of thanks to the customers who have helped build and shape the business over the last eight years, and an opportunity for anyone looking to take part in the auction for the first time to be in with a chance to win an impressive amount of whisky!”
