£8m whisky col­lec­tion to be auc­tioned off

Evening Times - - NEWS -

THE world’s largest pri­vate col­lec­tion of whisky to go un­der the ham­mer has been re­vealed.

The haul, ex­pected to fetch up to £8 mil­lion, com­prises more than 3900 bot­tles. It in­cludes a bot­tle of 1926 Fine and Rare Ma­callan, one of which re­cently be­came the most ex­pen­sive in the world when it sold for £1.5m.

Richard Good­ing, a for­mer Pep­siCo bot­tling mag­nate, built the col­lec­tion over decades, trav­el­ling to Scot­land with his pi­lot from his US home to source spe­cial bot­tles at auc­tions and dis­til­leries be­fore his death in 2014.

The col­lec­tion will be sold at two auc­tions in Fe­bru­ary and April.
