The Sleeping Beauty cask of Royal Lochnagar whisky

Auctioned by Whisky Auctioneer online for a combined total of £210,296


This unique cask of Royal Lochnagar whisky was laid down in 1994, with Scottish artist Norman Edgar being commission­ed to paint the cask end with a depiction of Scottish Ballet principal dancer Nicci Theis in the leading role of Princess Aurora. Standing as a symbol of a 26-year investment in the future of Scottish Ballet – Scotland’s national dance company – it was finally ‘awakened’ and bottled as part of Diageo’s prestigiou­s Casks of Distinctio­n range. All 470 bottles were snapped up by whisky lovers and ballet fans, with the first bottle (which was accompanie­d by the original cask end painting of The Sleeping Beauty) fetching £22,500.
