Spink to Host Silver Seal & Independent Bottler Event Apr 17 2014

On 19th April 2014 at 2pm, Spink China is honoured to host the 'Silver Seal & Independent Bottlers Single Malt Whisky and Rum Event' 

The 82 lot auction will also include an exclusive tasting session and lecture with Mr Massimo Righi, the owner of Silver Seal and the legendary Sestante Collection.

Based in Italy, Silver Seal is one of the few renowned independent bottlers in Europe to send their own bottles and labels to Scotland for bottling, earning the respected title 'Scotch'.

Spink Specialist, Anna Lee commented "In addition to the Silver Seal being internationally recognised and served in Michelin starred establishments worldwide, the name Sestante is considered very prestigious amongst whisky collectors and investors alike"

The auction consists of Gaelic malt whisky and rum from the Caribbean, including five extremely sought after Silver Seal crystal decanters, featuring Ardberg, Bunnahabain, Highland Park, Macallan and Port Ellen, accompanied by a certificate of authenticity for both the crystal and its whisky content.

At the forefront of the sale is lot 52, a single cask filled to the equivalent of 174 bottles of the 25 year old 1989 Macallan Scotch whisky, one of the five best-selling single malts of the world. There is also the unique opportunity to work with Silver Seal to create a personalised label and luxury packaging for the cask.

This will be the first time a lot of this kind has been sold at public auction, estimated HK$650,000 - 750,000.
