The Manager's Dram - Survived & Thrived

The Manager’s Dram whisky series was first released over 30 years ago in 1988 by United Distillers and quickly became an occasionally controversial hit with whisky fans. If you have a bottle of Manager's Dram whisky - or even a collection of them - take advantage of our free, no obligation valuation service. If you’re happy with your Manager’s Dram valuation, we can sell them on your behalf via our dedicated online whisky auction.

The original idea for The Manager’s Dram whiskies was simple - once a year the company’s distillery managers would meet up, with each manager bringing a sample of his favourite cask from the distillery for the others to try. The winning sample each year was bottled as The Manager’s Dram and made available only to the company’s employees.

Although some Manager’s Dram bottles were given as corporate gifts, the whiskies have never been available for sale to the general public. This scarcity, combined with the obvious cachet of a whisky chosen by a group of the most prestigious noses in the industry, gave The Manager’s Dram series an unbeatable must-have status in the secondary market even before the rise of whisky auctions.

United Distillers became part of Diageo in 1997 and was merged the following year with International Distillers and Vintners to become UDV (later renamed Diageo Scotland) but The Manager’s Dram series has survived and thrived, continuing to release one bottle annually - although the legendary Manager’s Dram tasting sessions are now no more.

If you have a bottle of Manager's Dram whisky - or even a collection of them - take advantage of our free, no obligation valuation service. If you’re happy with your Manager’s Dram valuation, we can sell them on your behalf via our dedicated online whisky auction.

The most popular whiskies in The Manager’s Dram series tend to be from the early years, with the extraordinary heavily-sherried trio of Glen Elgin 15-year-old, Aberfeldy 19-year-old and the legendary Caol Ila 15-year-old all bottled between 1988-1991. Other highlights include the Clynelish 17-year-old from 1998 and a few superb Oban bottlings, particularly the sherried 16-year-old edition released for the distillery’s bicentenary in 1994.

We always have customers looking to buy these highly desirable whiskies - as The Manager's Drams have never been available to the general public the only places to find these sought-after bottles are at whisky auctions and in the secondary retail market.

To date, we have auctioned in excess of 700 bottles from The Manager’s Dram series, so we have a very good understanding of their current market values. Our global network of whisky buyers and collectors are a ready market of customers searching for The Manager’s Dram whiskies, and we have achieved some fantastic prices for the most desirable bottles of this rare whisky series.
