Anderson & Garlands biggest ever Fine Wine & Whisky auction

Anderson & Garlands biggest ever Fine Wine & Whisky auction sees unprecedented level of demand.

Anderson & Garland Auctioneers’ held a live online Fine Wine and Whisky Sale on 7th December. Managing Director Julian Thomson commented, ‘It was perfect timing for the Christmas season, with buyer’s spending big on the great lots offered, and perhaps consoling themselves for the lack of Christmas parties, at the end of this altogether challenging year’.  He added ‘It was our most successful wine auction to date and nearly 100% sold. The demand was unprecedented!’

This near 3-hour auction, one of several Wine and Whisky sales this year, and their biggest to date, fetched over £70,000 across 190 lots, with bidders tuning in from across the world. Most entries had come from several fine cellars in Newcastle and Northumberland.


Top selling items in the wine section mostly comprised classic Bordeaux selections including: 6 bottles of Carruades de Lafite 2004, which sold for £850, to a buyer from Dorset; 12 bottles of Chateau Tertre Roteboeuf 1989 for £1,600, sold to a local buyer; 8 bottles of Chateau Lynch Bages 1990 for £1,500; and 12 bottles of Chateau Leoville Barton 1990, for £1,100, both selling to bidders from London.


In the whisky section, the highest selling lot was a Macallan Single Highland Malt celebrating the 35th Anniversary of Private Eye, which sold for £2,600, to a buyer in Hong Kong.

In other sections, 9 bottles of rare 1973 Delamain Grande Champagne Cognac by Justerini & Brooks, sold for £1,600, to a buyer from London; 12 bottles of Fonseca Vintage Port 1994, sold for £750, to a local buyer; and a mixed 9 bottle lot of classic wines and champagnes, sold for £800 to a local buyer.

In closing Julian commented ’We are now most definitely the leading Wine & Whisky auction house in the North of England and Scottish Borders and look forward to welcoming further entries for our next auction in 2021’.
