Whisky auction site, Whisky Auctioneer, has today announced the launch of a special one-off charity auction.

What has been described as a unique collection of extremely rare Scotch whiskies, will go under the hammer later this month, as the Scotch whisky industry joins forces to raise money for the Beatson Cancer Charity.

The auction which will run from between the 13th-23rd September on the Whisky Auctioneer website, will feature over 100 rare whiskies, with an estimated auction hammer price value of over £110,000.

Inspiration for the auction came from the former Edrington Chief Executive Ian Curle, who benefitted first-hand from the skill and dedication of the clinicians at The Beatson West of Scotland Cancer Centre.

Commenting on the auction, Ian Curle, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the Scotch Whisky Industry to come together and raise a lot of money for a world-leading cancer centre. The whiskies donated demonstrate the true spirit of one of Scotland’s best-known industries.”

Also commenting on the news, Karen Betts, Chief Executive of the Scotch Whisky Association, said: “The Scotch Whisky industry is very proud to be supporting the Beatson Cancer Charity auction and to help raise awareness about the incredible work they do in support of cancer patients across Scotland and their families. I wish the auction, with its range of amazing whiskies, every success for The Beatson.”
