Strathearn Distillery has launched the very first release of its new whisky after an exclusive auction which saw bottle 001 go for a staggering £4,150. 

The first 100 bottles from the distillery were auctioned off to the public by Whisky Auctioneer on the exclusive sale ending on the 1st December.

Founder of Strathearn Distillery, Tony Reeman-Clark will be hand delivering bottle 001 to an elated bidder in Italy.

The other bottles of Strathearn Scotch whisky, which have been matured for three years and a day, are also making their way to lucky bidders around the globe in the next few days.

Tony Reeman-Clark, Founder of Strathearn Distillery said: “This has been an amazing event, far exceeding my wildest dreams. This has proved to me that Strathearn’s friends are all around the world and all I can say is thank you.”

Strathearn Distillery, which is based in Perthshire and widely considered one of Scotland’s smallest distilleries, has been maturing its artisan single cask, single malt Scotch whisky using traditional methods and ideas.

The spirit is matured in small octave size (50 litre) casks to give the whisky a traditional and distinctive flavour. By using either peated or non-peated malt and varying the type of cask between sherry, rum or bourbon, each batch of whisky will be entirely unique.
