Irish Whiskey Museum - Macallan Most Expensive Whiskey

If you are following our blog you will have seen the most expensive Irish whiskey ever to be sold (well almost sold) for £100,000. You will also have seen the most expensive whiskey sold in the UK for £100,000 by invite only, well excuse me! However this price tag is small in comparison to the most expensive whiskey ever sold last week in Hong Kong.

For a mere $628,205 a large crystal decanter carrying the Scotch Macallan whiskey was sold at auction. Apparently it took 17 craftsmen more than 50 hours to produce the perfect 6 litre bottle. They threw away the previous 40 attempts and ended up with a choice of 4 bottles to select from.

It took 2 years to select the whiskey itself. It was a blend from 200,000 sherry casks, ranging in age between 25 – 75 years old. Don’t worry Scotland, with all of the new Irish whiskey distilleries due to open it won’t be long before Ireland is selling the next most rare and expensive whiskey…or is that just a proud Irish whiskey lover talking?

All in all, this bottle of Macallan is a rare whiskey in a rare bottle that should most definitely be savoured.

Cheers!
