THE PERFECT COLLECTION BY MR RICHARD GOODING
As the leading online rare whisky and spirits auction house, we encounter many great collections. However, this collection is unlike anything we have seen before and are likely to see again. Its sheer scale and rarity makes it one of the most significant discoveries in the whisky world.
The Perfect Collection is the culmination of one man’s enduring passion for Scotch whisky and his pursuit to own single malt whisky from every Scottish distillery, creating the 'perfect' collection. Standing at over 3,900 bottles, the significance of the collection commanded two separate sales, Part One of which took place in February 2020.
Not only was the highest ever sale price for The Macallan 1926 Valerio Adami achieved at over a million dollars, Whisky Auctioneer became the first online whisky auction to sell a million dollar bottle.
This February, we will offer the second part of this superlative collection, featuring over 1,900 bottles of the rarest, most coveted and expensive single malts in existence. Undoubtedly the entire collection is crowned by the incomparable The Macallan 1926 Fine and Rare, the first time it will appear at auction since becoming the world’s most expensive bottle of whisky in 2019.
The Perfect Collection by Mr. Richard Gooding: Part Two will take place from 12 - 22 February 2021 exclusively at WhiskyAuctioneer.com. To participate in this monumental occasion, you must register an account at Whisky Auctioneer.
Please take a moment to browse The Perfect Collection Digital Catalogue. This catalogue is just a preview of Mr. Gooding’s entire collection, curated to give you a sense of its astonishing depth and breadth. We hope that our selection will act as a taster to whet your appetite to find out even more about The Perfect Collection.
