A Bottle from Cask No 1 – The Distillers One Of One Auction

August 24, 2023

We are delighted to be once again taking part in the Distillers One of One auction, this time we’ve donated something truly special, a 70cl bottle from Cask Number 1!

This is a unique opportunity to own a remarkable piece of Kilchoman, and perhaps whisky making history. This auction lot, “Cask No.1”, is from the first cask the distillery ever created, filled on the 14th December 2005.

Presented in an etched glass bottle with a bespoke layered wooden box design, representing the distinct landscape surrounding the distillery, the lot comes with an accompanying letter of authenticity from Kilchoman Founder, Anthony Wills.

This unique whisky has a delicate fresh citrus and sweet nose with a balance of maritime notes, fruit, and smoke on the palate.

In partnership with Sotheby’s The Distillers One of One auction brings together an unparalleled collection of one-off, never-to-be-repeated Scotch whiskies from distilleries across Scotland.  Launched in 2021, this biennial series of auctions is now returning for the second edition.

The first Distillers’ One of One auction took place in December 2021 and achieved record-breaking hammer prices.  Over £2.4 million was donated to the Distillers’ Charity, partially to the Youth Action Fund, which aims to improve the life chances of disadvantaged young people in our Scotch Whisky-making communities.

The 2023 auction will take place on Thursday 5th October.  Hosted in the resplendent Hopetoun House, widely considered to be one of Scotland’s finest stately homes, this will be an unmissable showcase of rare and remarkable Scotch Whisky.
