Overlook chardonnay with turkey this Thanksgiving. One adventurous, and deep-pocketed fanatic might nicely be serving probably the most worthwhile bottle of whisky on the earth at their vacation feast. Though that is likely to be a little bit of a stretch, what with the bottle costing $2.7 million.
Generally known as “the most sought-after Scotch whisky” on the earth, The Macallan 1926, considered one of solely 40 bottles drawn after ageing in sherry casks for 60 years, bought at public sale Saturday at Sotheby’s in London, turning into the most costly bottle of spirt or wine bought at public sale.
The earlier report was set in 2019 when Sotheby’s sold a bottle of The Macallan 1926 for $1.9 million. The Macallan distillery is a single malt Scotch whisky distillery in Craigellachie, Moray, Scotland.
The 700 ml bottle accommodates about 45 pours of 15 ml every, breaking all the way down to about $60,000 a pour for its fortunate new proprietor and mates.
Forward of the sale, Sotheby’s head of whisky Jonny Fowle informed AFP information company that he had tried a small pattern. “I tasted a tiny drop—a tiny drop—of this. It’s very wealthy, it’s bought a whole lot of dried fruit as you’ll anticipate, a whole lot of spice, a whole lot of wooden,” he stated, calling it an “unbelievable” whisky that shouldn’t be taken calmly.
At $2.7 million a bottle, it is uncertain anybody would take this whisky calmly.
