Just entered in our March Collectors’ Auction (4th & 5th) is this covetable bottle of the Macallan Private Eye whisky. One of the most collectible Macallans of all time, it was bottled in 1996 for the 35th anniversary of the famous satirical magazine, Private Eye.

The vatting produced 5,000 bottles and included one cask from 1961.

This special edition features a superb screen-printed label by the legendary gonzo illustrator, Ralph Steadman.

This bottle is numbered 1673/5000 and estimated at £3,000 – £4,000.

History of the Macallan Private Eye whisky

The whisky went on general release in 1996 and retailed for £36 per bottle. Our private vendor secured two bottles – one of which has been enjoyed, and one conserved and now presented for sale by auction.

Each of the 5,000 bottles was individually numbered.
