Whisky Jim Clark

Lot No.: 219

Estimate (£): 500 - 600
(+buyer’s premium of 24% including VAT @ 20%)

 This is a bottle of very special whisky created by Stanley Hutchison, the blender of Robertson and Baxter Ltd the distillers, for the Jim Clark reunion dinner held at the Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh, on Saturday, April 3, 1993. This dinner was by private invitation to Jim Clark's racing friends close to the 25th anniversary of his death at Hockenheim. It consists of an amalgam of 12-year-old Class A Highland single malt whiskies. Only 180 bottles were created and there were 137 guests at the dinner each of whom was presented with a bottle. There was no presentation box for this whisky which is why it is simply the bottle with its unique label. It is sold with a copy of the menu for the dinner listing the names of everyone present and the description of the whisky.
