CASKSHARE LISTS RARE THE MACALLAN 30YO SINGLE CASK
– Ballot Open Until Sunday 11th December for £2,850 Bottles –
Hot on the heels of a ballot sale for a cask of Springbank 30YO, which saw over 600 people sign up to buy one of 135 £1.6k bottles, Caskshare has released a ballot for a single cask malt that is set to be even hotter property: The Macallan 30YO.
One hundred and eighty bottles of the rare malt are now on sale at £2,850 each. Maturing in a first-fill Sherry cask, the 30 year-old expression is due to be bottled in May 2023, bearing one of the highest single-cask ABVs on the market at 51.5%.
According to a recent report by investment bank Noble & Co, The Macallan, produced by Famous Grouse owner Edrington, is the number one brand for both volume and value in the secondary market. Using data collected from over 580,000 whisky auction transactions over the last decade, the report also shows a 21% increase in the value of fine and rare single malts in 2022, with the volume of bottles sold increasing by 23%. In October, a single bottle of The Macallan 80YO sold at auction in Sotheby’s for £300,000.
John Robertson, MD of Caskshare, said: “The Macallan is undoubtedly one of the most aspirational single malt whiskies, with a global reputation for quality and provenance. It’s really not often that a cask of such rarity comes up and we’re expecting it to be hugely sought-after by both connoisseurs and collectors.”
The ballot is open to UK and international customers and closes at midday on Sunday 11th December.
A cask-to-glass service, Caskshare was founded in 2019. As well as selling whiskies from 13 new-wave distilleries including Arbikie and Raasay, Caskshare acts as an independent bottler, acquiring rare single malt casks direct from distilleries to enable people to get a taste of one-of-a-kind whiskies across a range of price points that can’t be found anywhere else.
