Hammer highlights from the Vintage Fine Wine & Spirits 3 auction, which ended Sunday 22nd May.
The top selling lot from the sale was Lot 401 A bottle of The Macallan Seven Year Old Single Highland Malt Scotch Whisky, matured in sherry wood, imported by Giovinetti & Figli S.P.A, Milano, 40% vol, 70cl in card box.
A rare seven year old Macallan produced for several decades, especially for Italian wine and spirit importers, Giovinetti and Figli.
The company’s founder, Armando Giovinetti, is often credited with introducing single malt whisky to the Italian public. He worked as an agent primarily for Glen Grant, but was a long-time collaborator with Macallan as well.
The label features watercolour artworks produced by Sara Midda during a visit to the distillery. They are synonymous with Macallan from this period.
