The Worshipful Company of Distillers’ online auction goes live this Sunday June 7.

The whisky auction, which will include historic and highly sought-after bottles, aims to raise funds for The Drinks Trust. The money raised will be in aid of those in the industry facing hardship, illness and despair during these difficult times for the drinks and hospitality industry.

Highlights include a bottle of Glenmorangie Claret Wood, a Mortlach 20 year-old 1997, a Glenrothes 1973, a Flor de Cava Generaciones 30 year-old and a Courvoisier Erte No 1. A very rare and limited-edition bottle of Havana Club 500 Aniversario is also included and, uniquely, a barrel of 1998-distilled Caroni rum.

Wines and fortified wines feature too, including: a rare estate-bottled 1976 Schlossboeckelheimer Kupfergrube Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese, a Drouhin Chambolle-Musigny, Les Sentiers 1990.

The auction runs from Sunday June 7 until Tuesday June 16.
