Tobermory distillery on the Isle of Mull was founded as Ledaig in 1798 but has had a turbulent history with long periods of closure - Ledaig distillery was operational for a total of less than six years between 1930 and 1989. 

After four decades of silence, a brief post-refurbishment spell between 1972 and 1975 produced the Ledaig distillery’s greatest ever malt whiskies, dense and heavily peated.  In 1979 the distillery reopened as Tobermory, but production was sporadic and both quality and peating levels were very inconsistent; the distillery was closed again between 1982 and 1989. 

In 1993 Burn Stewart bought Tobermory and reinstituted the production of both unpeated spirit (Tobermory) and heavily-peated spirit (Ledaig). Finally under stable ownership, Tobermory slowly began to thrive, particularly after Distell’s 2013 acquisition of Burn Stewart, and the heavy, uncompromising Ledaig now has a cult following.

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.
