Robert Temple, Director, Hong Kong Auctions, comments:
“Working in the wine industry since 1986 has given me the opportunity to taste some great wines and spirits. The selection I have chosen for this auction represents some of best of the Old and New World, and of course, it is thrilling to have such a broad range of magnificent Scotch whisky. Tasting through some of the Australian wines revealed many stunning examples of quality and longevity.
Collectors from around the world can take part in the upcoming sale with absentee bids or in real time via a online bidding platform.
