Rare Balvenie Scotch Whisky from the Tom Willcock Collection
We were pleased to offer this extremely rare 50-year old Balvenie scotch whisky in the first of four Tom Willcock Collection of Fine and Rare Whisky auctions.
Distilled in 1937, during the reign of King George VI and before the outbreak of World War II, this Balvenie was bottled 50 years later, in 1987.
This was one of just 500 bottles produced, and certainly one of the few still remaining, 30+ years later.
Fine Wine and Spirits
Waddington’s is the sole and first company in Ontario permitted to provide the sale by auction of fine wine and spirits, under the authority of the LCBO. Waddington’s previously conducted the LCBO’s Vintages Fine Wine and Spirits auctions from 2009 – 2013. The popularity of collecting wine as an investment grows every year. Many wines offered at auction appreciate in value, especially rare and acclaimed vintages, making auctions an excellent way to build a fine wine portfolio. Our auctions also provide an opportunity for collectors to buy wines that aren’t available through other channels and allow restaurants to build world-class wine lists.
