In May last year, Japanese whisky fans competed fiercely for a collection of rare whisky bottles at Bonhams in Hong Kong.

Over 30 rare bottles were available, the best-selling lots of which were a bottle of 1968 Karuizawa which sold for double its estimate at HK$45,220 (£3,502)

Four bottles of Hangyu Ichiro’s Card Series also sold for HK$22,610 (£1,755).

  1. So many exciting spirits hitting the market, very interesting! The Pappy Van Winkle Bourbons are ones to watch as they have been exceeding estimates of late. Zachys Wine Auctions auctioned off 3 bottles of the 23 Year Old in our June 2013 live auction in New York City and the price realized was 203% above midpoint. Looking forward to seeing how spirits do in 2014.–Lydia Serrano, Zachys Wine Auctions
