Author and writer Raven Smith joins specialist Charles Foley to find out how — using its vast network of contacts and access to cellars across the globe — Christie’s can facilitate private sales of the most sought-after whiskies, from Dalmore to Macallan to Karuizawa In an Art Deco bar in St James’s, a stone’s throw from Christie’s London salerooms, Wine and Spirits specialist Charles Foley joins bestselling author, columnist and ‘funniest man on Instagram’ Raven Smith for a glass of Highland malt to discuss buying whisky. ‘If I was going to start collecting whisky, what advice would you give me?’ asks Smith in our short video, above. ‘At the moment, I would be looking at all of the big names in Scotland,’ replies Foley. ‘The largest of these is Macallan.’ Macallan is Scotland’s best-known single-malt whisky and is made in a distillery in Moray, on the rugged north coast.
