Auction house, Bonham's, will be holding a sale of rare whisky on 7 March 2018 at 11am.
The sale includes two rare whiskies; a bottle of the Macallan Select Reserve 52 year-old 1946, bottled in May 1998. It is estimated at £12,000-14,000 and a bottle of Black Bowmore 1964, bottled in 1994, and estimated at £8,000-10,000.
The 1946 Macallan was produced in an unusual way. Coal was scarce and expensive immediate after World War II, so the malt was dried in peat-fired kilns instead resulting in a whisky with distinct and complex tastes and aromas.
