Preparations have begun for an annual whisky auction on Speyside that raises thousands of pounds for good causes.
Craigellachie Village Council has started compiling its catalogue for the sale which generates interest from across the globe.
Last year’s event had more than 140 whiskies going under the hammer – which sold for a combined £47,000 to generate £11,000 to support the group, which runs the village hall and tennis courts.
An invitation has now been issued for sellers to submit their bottle for the May 5 sale, which is again part of the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival.
The top seller at 2018’s auction was a Macallan Royal Marriage, which was released to celebrate Charles and Diana’s wedding, which sold for £3,100.
Organiser Jane Tweedie said: “The village council has gained a reputation for staging a very professional event, meeting the aspirations of sellers and buyers, while attracting interest from local, national and international whisky fans.
“We already have some extremely interesting entries and it is looking like being another very tempting day for whisky enthusiasts from all over the world.”
The deadline to submit bottles is 1pm on April 20. Forms can be obtained online at www.craigellachie.org.uk
