Rare whisky expected to go under hammer again in Speyside village auction

Villagers in Speyside are preparing to sell another stellar catalogue of whisky to raise funds for their community.

Last year’s auction in Craigellachie raised nearly £10,000 with a cut from the sale going towards maintenance on the local hall and the restoration of the historic bridge over the River Spey.

The village council organisers have already begun preparation for the May 3 event, which will be the eighth time it has been held.

Donations are now being accepted ranging from blends to distinctive malts and rare bottlings to contribute to the sale. Sought-after Macallan bottles have already been submitted.

Chairwoman 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 for entries is April 17 with bottles delivered to the village hall by the following day.

Seller registration forms are available online at www.craigellachie.org.uk
