Graeme Maxwell of McTear’s delights in bringing exclusive and unusual bottlings to auction. ‘Choosing one highlight of the McTear’s Rare & Collectable Whisky Auction isn’t easy,’ he says. ‘But one lot that sticks in mind is the Glenlivet 1943 Gordon & MacPhail Private Collection, aged 70 years, which sold in August 2018 for over £40,000.’
With 10 years’ retail experience selling specialist drinks, Maxwell joined the auction house in 2016. He provides first class valuation and auction service to clients from around the UK and internationally. Outside of work, he’s a fan of playing five-a-side football, a few rounds of golf, or re-watching the Star Wars saga.
