Want to grab a drink? Here are some of the most expensive whiskey bottles in the world
Did you know, some of the most expensive whiskey brands are not high-priced because of their taste, but because of the vessels they are bottled in? With an interesting history and a place in every gentleman’s favorite drinks, whiskey has always been a valuable drink.
Here is a list of some of the most expensive whiskey brands in the world.
Dalmore 62 Single Highland Malt Scotch (Matheson 1942)
Priced at $52,000, this legendary scotch belongs to the Dalmore Distillery. Little did Alexander Matheson know that this creation of his would one day become one of the most expensive drinks on the globe. This particular scotch whiskey, with only 12 bottles made, was released in the year 1942. This was done to honor Alexander Matheson. Inside the elegant packaging is a drink with a striking taste. If you wish to buy this, the only place is a private collector’s auction, provided, you are willing to pay $58,000.
Undoubtedly one of the best whiskeys in the world, Glenfiddich 1937 is a single malt scotch whiskey with exquisite flavors of molasses, chocolate, burnt heather , cedar, and oak. Drawn from a casket made in 1937, the composition of this Glenfiddich is unique. About 60 bottles of the same batch remain and can be found only at an auction. The last auction fetched $71,000 for a bottle.
Most of the 1937 owners dare not drink this rare brew, but those who have, claim that it tastes remarkable.
The Macallan 1926
A part of the fine and rare collection of whiskey, the Macallan 1926 can be aptly defined as a distillery’s history in a glass. The earliest release from the Macallan distillery, this whiskey stands at a value of $75,000.
What is the first thought that comes to your mind when you hear a quarter million dollars? Certainly, the answer is not a bottle of whiskey. Well, this Dalmore 62, just like the other ones which are more than a century old, costs a whopping $250,000. The wooden mold that was used to build the decanter was handcrafted in 100 hours. The platinum and crystal decanter is the reason behind this price.
8,500 diamonds, 300 rubies, and exquisite white gold decanter make this whisky stand out. It is not just about the decanter; Isabella’s Islay is one of the finest luxury scotch whiskies that money can buy.
