McTear’s whisky expert Stephen McGinty said: “Our monthly rare and collectable sales have already established a market-leading reputation, however, the sale this week resulted in a record total for a McTear’s whisky auction.

“We had many fine examples of the amber nectar. However, the star of the show was undoubtedly the Macallan 25-year-old Silver Jubilee magnum which sold for £3,600.”
