The Distillers One Of One AuctionNovember 15, 2021
We are delighted to take part in the Distillers One of One auction with an American Oak Cask of Kilchoman New Make Spirit distilled in 2021. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a barrel of our 100% Islay new make spirit produced from barley grown in the fields surrounding the distillery and malted on our traditional floor maltings. Once distilled and filled into an American oak barrel, this spirit will be left to mature and bottled when the auction winner sees fit.
Launched in 2021, the Distillers’ One of One is a biennial series of auctions of Scottish whisky in aid of disadvantaged young people in Scotland. With over 37 donors and 42 unique lots, the aim is to be the first spirits charity auction to raise in excess of 1.2 million, improving the life chances of 1500 of Scotland’s disadvantaged young people over the next 5-6 years.
In order to help transform the life chances of young people in Scotland post pandemic, The Distillers’ Charity has created The One of One Youth Action Fund. The proceeds from the Distillers’ One of One Auction will be disbursed from the fund to a number of charities that focus on empowering Scotland’s young adults to create positive change in their lives and communities. Sotheby’s will also donate a portion of their buyer’s premium from the Auction to The Distillers’ Charity.
The auction will take place 3rd December 2021 at 13:00 GMT in Edinburgh.
