TWO rare casks of Scotch Whiskey will sell for up to £1.2million each.
Both are ghost casks of drams left over from two now-closed distilleries.
One is a 1982 vintage from Brora, Sutherland, in the Scottish Highlands.
The other is from 1979 and Port Ellen on Islay.
They will be auctioned at Sotheby’s in London on Tuesday with prices ranging from £700,000 to £1.2million.
The sale is a collaboration with drinks giant Diageo, which describes the kegs as “the rarest and most valuable available”.
The company donated five percent of the final price to support the Ukraine crisis.
Jonny Fowle, head of whiskey at Sotheby’s, said the sale was intended to attract “the best collectors in the world”.
The Brora distillery first opened in 1820.
