Scran season 6: The money being made by whisky

Welcome to season 6 of Scran!

Published 22nd Jul 2022

On this episode of Scran Rosalind is discussing a topic she finds very interesting, old and rare whisky, record breaking amounts spent on whisky and how the digital world is impacting the industry.

A few months back Rosalind went along to the Distillers One of One auction - the first in a biennial series of auctions of ultra-rare Scottish whisky in aid of disadvantaged young people in Scotland.

The auction took place in partnership with Sothebys and Rosalind speaks to a number of those involved including.

Rosalind also speaks to the ever-interesting Blair Bowman, whisky consultant, broker and author, about this new world of whisky.

Never one to shy away from a critical view of the industry, Blair talks us through the relatively new world of NFTs and what this means for whisky in general - and spoiler alert - he's not happy about it.
