This week our Irish Whiskey Weekly News features articles on the worlds most expensive bottle of whiskey ever sold at auction and Irelands first whiskey auction site is to launch on October 13th.
So let’s see what’s been happening this week in our Irish whiskey weekly news.
A bottle of Scotch whisky, thought to be the world’s most valuable, has been sold for just over €950,000. The bottle of The Macallan Valerio Adami fetched a record £848,750 (€954,500) at auction at Bonhams in Edinburgh on Wednesday. Described by experts as “the Holy Grail of whisky”, it attracted attention from some of the world’s most serious collectors.
The buyer was a private collector from Asia who bid by phone, auctioneer Bonhams said. The whisky is officially described as a 60-year-old, having been created in 1926 and bottled in 1986. The firm sold one of 12 other bottles with a label by the Italian artist Adami in May this year for £814,091.
