The History Of Moon Import

Moon Import, founded by Pepi Mongiardino, is an independent whisky bottler and importer, based in Italy. The company is renowned for producing excellent and unusual bottles, often with artistic labels and packaging.

Mongiardino began working in the wines and spirits market for Ballantine’s and Milton Duff in 1970. His work involved visiting high-end restaurants and tasting single malts from esteemed distilleries such as Glenlivet and Macallan. When the company fell upon hard times, Mongiardino decided it was the opportune moment for him to pursue his love of whisky and champagne and went on to set up his own company in late 1980.

He used a book of Scottish distilleries to research the ones that weren’t imported to Italy yet, then called Bruichladdich before flying to Scotland the next day to meet them. This led to Moon Import becoming the first Italian distributor for Bruichladdich, a contract which they maintained for the next five years. When that contract finished, he was then asked by Bruichladdich if he was interested in selling the distribution rights to another importer, Rinaldi and whether he wanted a different malt to start distributing over there. Moon Import then started distributing Tulibardine and Tamnavulin.

Moon Import also export rums and champagne.

Half Moon Series

Moon Import started bottling their own whiskies in 1982. Mongiardino visited Scotland regularly, tasting different malts and buying the casks he liked. The first bottling that the company released was the Half Moon series in 1982, with a second following in 1985 that had a striking alembic (still) design on the label.

The Sea, The Costumes, The Animals and The Birds

Moon import is famous for its creative and attractive labels, all of which are designed by Pepi himself, each are named individually and include designs such as The Sea, The Costumes, The Animals and The Birds collection that use images taken from a German encyclopaedia from the 18th century.

Bottles are traditional tall style, with stopper corks covered with gold foil. Each series and cask number have their own design and are carry value as artworks, not just as whiskies.  A bottle of 1964 Moon Import Bowmore from The Birds I collection (8/240) sold for £6,600.

The Six Factors That Affect The Price Of Moon Import Whisky

There are six factors that will affect the price of your bottle of Moon Import. These are the age of the whisky, the bottling date, the vintage, whether it is a single cask edition, the level of the whisky and the condition of the label and box.

Moon Import Whisky Value

Age of Whisky

This refers to the number of years the whisky has spent maturing in the cask, not how long it has been in the bottle. The age is indicated on the label and can vary from 5 to over 30 years old.

Macallan Whisky Worth

Bottling Date

This relates to when the whisky was bottled. As bottles from a specific year are consumed, the remaining bottles become rarer, so a ‘standard’ malt released in the 1980’s can become sought after.

Moon Import Whisky Value

Distillation Year

The distillation year refers to the specific year in which the whisky was distilled (made).  It is one of the most important factors that can impact the price of your bottle of Moon Import. 

Moon Import Whisky Value

Label & Packaging

The label on a bottle of Moon Import is very important and if it is damaged in any way then this will have a negative impact on the value. A bottle without its original box could be worth up to 30% less.

Moon Import Whisky Value

Level

The level of the whisky has a large impact on the value. It should be into the neck (the narrow part). As alcohol is more volatile than water it is the alcohol that will evaporate first, which damages the flavour.

Moon Import Whisky Value

Single Cask Bottlings

Single cask bottlings are generally more sought after, as by default they are unique. Look out for numbers on your bottle like XXX/250, which would indicate a single cask edition.

Mark Littler LTD 5 star Google reviews

“I found Mark’s details online after looking to sell a collectable bottle of whisky. I was going to use a well know auction site but Mark secured an offer higher than the highest estimation from any auction house, within days, even after the 10% commission was deducted. Communication was perfect; punctual, to the point and polite. Collection and delivery were taken care of by Mark and instruction was clear and easy to follow. Payment was received to my bank within days of posting the bottle. I can’t recommend Mark enough; he runs a tight ship gets top end offers from his clients and delivers quickly.”

Rod Fountain, via Google

“Mark has been very helpful in helping me sell a bottle of whisky which was given to my father many years ago. He was very professional and was always quick to reply to my questions. Not knowing anything about whisky, Mark was there to offer some good advice and I believe he is very knowledgeable about his work. The sale was done very [quickly], and the money was in my bank account the next day. I would highly recommend his services.”
