Blended Whisky Auction

Bottle Auction


A bottle of Glorious 12th Fine Old Blended Scotch Whisky produced by John Buckmaster & Sons. We estimate this was bottled in the late 1970s to early 1980s.

Edward VII called 12 August the 'Glorious 12th' as it was the day that grouse shooting, one of the King's favourite pursuits, would commence each year.

This lot comes from a large collection built up during the 1970s in Kent, England. For 50 years the owner displayed the collection in the family’s home bar, with later additions being gifted to the collector by friends and family. Then in 2021 the collection was dismantled to be sold at auction. Many of the bottles have stickers that show the original price paid and the date (month/year) of purchase.
