Aged Whiskey...In a Day?
Now Playing: Know your spirits: Whisky
It’s been dubbed the Holy Grail of whisky by connoisseurs – the bottle, a Macallan Valerio Adami 1926.
Distilled in 1926, the bottles were kept in a cask until bottling in 1986. Although only 24 bottles were ever produced, no one is sure how many still exist. The reason for their high value isn’t so much about the whisky inside, however. It’s actually about the collector value of the labels. Back in the ’80s, Italian artist Valerio Adami designed and signed the label on twelve bottles. The remaining dozen were designed by British artist Peter Blake, who co-created the album cover of The Beatles’Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
And whilst a UK-based seller picked up the rare bottle direct from The Macallan distillery for a rather lousy ,000 in 1994, today the bottles fetch a rather pretty penny: .1 million dollars, to be exact.Macallan Whiskey sells for .1 million
Bonhams in Edinburgh, Scotland recently put up the bottle for auction and in doing so, they set a new world record for the most valuable bottle of whisky every sold. But in spite of the record-breaking achievement, the unnamed buyer couldn’t even be bothered to show up with the private collector instead choosing to place his winning bid over the phone.
The auctioneer’s whisky specialist Martin Green said, “I am delighted at this exceptional result. It is a great honour to have established a new world record, and particularly exciting to have done so here in Scotland – the home of whiskey.
“Bonhams now holds the record for the three most valuable bottles of whisky sold at auction,” he added.
Despite the success, the new record may be surpassed sooner than expected. Sotheby’s is set to auction off a Peter Blake-signed bottle in New York on October 13th, and it’s expected to push that record to .2 million.
