Whisky Auctioneer will mark World Whisky Day 2020 on Saturday 16 May with a special one day auction in support of Scotland’s finest independent whisky bars. The auction, which will run from 10am and end from 4pm, will feature 7 bottles of Daftmill 2008 Single Bourbon Cask #68, with 100% of profits from the sale being split equally between the seven members of the Independent Whisky Bars of Scotland group.

Never made available at retail the whisky, part of a 160 bottle release, is the result of a collaboration between Daftmill Distillery and independent bottlers Berry Brothers and Rudd and was produced for the IWBoS group to be sold by the dram behind each of the seven bars. This makes the upcoming auction the first and only chance for whisky lovers to get their hands on a full bottle of this single malt whisky from Daftmill Distillery.

In addition to these seven limited edition bottles up for auction, Daftmill have generously donated a tour of the distillery for up to six people. This incredible experience to tour Daftmill Distillery (a rare oppportunity as the farm distillery is not normally open to the public) will be available to bid on in the auction with all proceeds added to the cumulative total to be split between the seven members of the Independent Whisky Bars of Scotland.

With the impact of the current COVID-19 crisis being felt across the drinks industry, we are keen to offer what support we can to Scotland’s independent whisky bars at this difficult time. They play a vital role within the whisky industry, offering access to a vast range of whiskies and passing on their passion for the spirit to so many.

The bars that will benefit from the fundraiser include The Ardshiel in Campbeltown, Artisan in Wishaw, The Bon Accord in Glasgow, Dornoch Castle Hotel in Dornoch, Fiddlers Inn in Drumnadrochit, The Highlander Inn in Craigellachie and The Malt Room in Inverness.
