Whisky Auctioneer marked World Whisky Day 2020 on Saturday 16th May with a special one day auction in support of Scotland’s finest independent whisky bars.
The auction featured 7 bottles of Daftmill 2008 Single Bourbon Cask #68 and an exclusive opportunity to bid on a Daftmill Distillery experience. 100% of the profits from the auction were split equally between the seven members of the Independent Whisky Bars of Scotland group.
As featured in The Spirit's Business, the auction was a roaring success raising more than £35,000 for the Scottish whisky bars. The bars include The Ardshiel in Campbeltown, Artisan in Wishaw, the Bon Accord in Glasgow, Dornoch Castle Hotel in Dornoch, Fiddlers Inn in Drumnadrochit, The Highlander Inn in Craigellachie and The Malt Room in Inverness. Each bar received a donation of £4,941.53 to support them during the Covid-19 crisis.
