Dalwhinnie distillery was established in 1898 and became part of Diageo forerunner DCL in 1926. The distillery was catapulted to fame in 1987 as the Speyside representative in the Classic Malts range launched by DCL’s descendant United Distillers to highlight whisky’s regional diversity. Dalwhinnie is often incorrectly cited as Scotland’s highest distillery - that honour belongs to Braeval, whose altitude is 9ft higher. 

Unusually for the Classic Malts, the dumpy-bottled Dalwhinnie 15-year-old was already a pre-existing single malt from DCL subsidiary James Buchanan and was absorbed into the Classic Malts with its strength bumped to 43%. After a popular cask strength Centenary Edition 15-year-old from 1998, Dalwhinnie became a regular in Diageo’s Special Releases, with seven appearances since 2002. These have fared better than the uninspiring Winter’s Gold and Game of Thrones NAS releases. Independent bottlings of Dalwhinnie whisky are virtually non-existent.

North Star Spirits is an independent whisky bottling company founded in Glasgow in 2016 by AD Rattray alumnus Iain Croucher. North Star quickly established itself as one of the most popular of the recent wave of Scottish independent whisky bottlers thanks to a prolific series of top class whiskies released in eye-catching packaging at sensible prices. North Star Spirits was named Indepedent Bottler of the Year at the Scottish Whisky Awards in 2020 and 2021.

Besides their excellent single cask and small batch single malt releases, which are bottled without colouring or chill filtration and are usually at cask strength, North Star have also released several outstanding blended malt and blended Scotch whiskies alongside occasional bottlings of rum, gin, bourbon and Pedro Ximenez fortified wine.


Although a condition report is normally included in the Lot description, we do recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please use the form below "Ask A Question" to make specific enquiries or to receive a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise, Lots will be sold as seen and described.
Please note: due to the various ages of bottles, corks and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion. And no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.All bottles are checked by our whisky specialists Wayne & Harrison Ormerod prior to any auction. We do not auction opened bottles so therefore all items are sealed unless stated under certain circumstances where seals were never issued by the producer.
No item is deemed new, however many items are generally in good condition. When this is not the case, we aim to mention any faults in the description. The images supplied are of the actual item you will receive. If the filling level of the liquid is not visible in the images provided, we aim to indicate the current position in the description. If the filling level is impossible to determine, such as with ceramics decanters, we will provide an overall weight of the decanter in KG. Our filling level guideline can be found here.
All information in this listing is provided to the best of our knowledge including when we chose to date the age of a bottle. If you are unhappy with the listing or believe there is an error/discrepancy, you should notify us immediately and we will address the Lot accordingly. Placing a bid confirms you have checked the Lot and are satisfied.
