Heres The Most Expensive Whiskey In The World, Who’s Buying The First Round?

A bottle of single malt whisky was sold yesterday (Weds) for a record-breaking £68,500.

The Glenfiddich Collection 1937 was laid down in cask during the year of George VI’s coronation but not bottled until 2001.


Bottle of single malt whisky sells for record-breaking £68,500

It is highly unusual for a single malt Scotch Whisky of this age to have kept its strength – making the 60 bottles from cask 842 so desirable.

The bottle of whisky was auctioned by Bonhams in Edinburgh, with the auction house giving it a guide price of £25,000 – £35,000.

A buyer from the Far East eventually paid £68,500 for it following a bidding battle – a record paid at auction for a bottle of Glenfiddich and a Scottish auction house record for the sale of a single malt.

Martin Green, a whisky specialist at Bonhams, said: “The record price reflects the exceptional rarity of the Glenfiddich Rare Collection 1937 and its great appeal to collectors everywhere.”
