The modern whisky market

The market for whisky has increased dramatically over the past few years. 2018 saw prices reach their expected peak, with the record for the most expensive bottle ever sold broken twice. There are a few things to be aware of when looking at the value of your bottle:

  • The most sought after bottles are those from limited edition runs and those that were bottled before the year 2000.

  • There is a premium for bottles that were bottled before the 1990s.  These bottles can be identified by their size, as they will state their volume as being 75cl, 750ml or 26 2/3 fl ozs.
  • Macallan continues to be the most sought after single malt whisky but other distilleries such as Highland Park, Bowmore, Laphroaig, Ardbeg and Bruichladdich can be very valuable too.

What to Look For

The six factors that affect the value of single malt whisky bottles

Macallan Whisky Vintages

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.

What is Macallan Worth

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 Cadenhead. 

Macallan Whisky Worth 18 Year Old

Label & Packaging

The label on a bottle of Cadenhead 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.

Macallan Whisky Level

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.

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.
