A bottle of Old Angus Liqueur Blended Scotch Whisky, Train & MacIntyre Ltd, Glasgow, sold for a top-estimate £200 to a private UK buyer. Spotted on a home visit by Adrian Rathbone of Hansons, it had been originally purchased at the outbreak of the Second World War, in 1939.

Miniatures also sold well from a collection amassed over 30 years by a now deceased gentleman from Rugeley – about five minutes away from Bishton Hall. Rathbone said: “He was a contributor to a number of written publications.”

Highlights included three Macallan miniatures from 1973, 1974 and 1975 which took £240 against an estimate of £75-150, and three from 1970, 1971 and 1972 with the same guide that made £170. Both lots were bought by different UK buyers bidding online.

The sale took place on October 20.
