Willowbank was a farm distillery constructed at Dunedin on New Zealand’s South Island in 1969, with distillation commencing officially in 1974. Willowbank was the most southerly whisky distillery in the world at the time and was equipped with both pot and column stills. Owners the Baker family bottled Willowbank’s spirit in their blended whisky brands 45 South and Wilson’s, and consequently the distillery is often referred to as Wilson’s or Dunedin as well as Willowbank.

Seagram bought the distillery in the early 1980s, replacing the stainless steel stills with copper pot stills and bottling Willowbank's single malt as Lammerlaw. Brewing giant Foster’s bought Willowbank in 1997 and promptly shut down and dismantled the distillery, selling the stills to a Fijiian rum producer. Willowbank’s maturing stock of over 400 casks was bought at auction by The New Zealand Whisky Company, who bottle Willowbank’s remaining single malt as Milford’s, Dunedin or The Oamaruvian.


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.
