As part of a new wave of collectors who appreciate craft, the number of Australians focusing their passions on rare, old and limited-run spirits is on the rise. From old bottlings of Scotch Whisky to conceptual, small-batch gins from new distilleries, to rare rum Queensland curios, this auction is an opportunity to find buyers for those interesting bottles or find some for your own collection.
