Further information

Speyburn is the most elusive of the Flora and Fauna whiskies because it was discontinued shortly after it was released when Speyburn distillery was sold to Inver House Distillers in 1991.

We are not certain whether it was ever released with a white cap, since no record of the white capped version selling at auction could be found. However, it was released with a back cap and it has been sold at auction both with its accompanying wooden box and as a stand-alone bottle. Speyburn F&F was discontinued before the cardboard carton release.

Valuation and Market Tracker

The valuation and market tracker uses historic auction hammer price data available in the public domain. Prices exclude associated fees such as buyer premium, shipping and insurance. Where sales have occurred in a non-GBP currency, an approximate conversion has been calculated based on the exchange rate at the time the sale took place. The tracker does not include unverifiable private sales. It is intended to be used as a market guide rather than a valuation tool.
