Bonhams online The Macallan Whisky Sale achieved an astonishing 100% sell rate by both lot and value. The sale, mounted by Bonhams Hong Kong, saw every lot sold - many for well above their pre-sale estimates.
The top lot was a bottle of Macallan Vertical 1954-1986, which realised HK$673,750, whilst the Macallan Selected Reserve 1964 52 year-old achieved HK$104,125, against an estimate of HK$75,000-95,000. Another highlight was the Macallan Glenlivet-1938 Decanter, which achieved HK$51,450 (HK$42,000-48,000).
Daniel Lam, a specialist in Bonhams Hong Kong Wine and Whisky department, commented: 'The overwhelming success of this sale proves that the demand for both whisky and online bidding continues to soar. A 100% sell-through rate is an increasingly rare feat, and we were delighted to be able to find buyers for every lot, some of which are considered amongst Macallan's finest creations.'
