‘World’s oldest whisky’ opened

A bottle of ‘Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862’, reputed to be the oldest whisky in the world, was opened on 14 March as part of an unusual project called the ‘Whisky Watch’, using a drop of the oldest whisky to create a timepiece.

Opening the ‘Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862’

The project, a collaboration between Wealth Solutions and an independent Swiss watch brand, Louis Moinet, is the latest addition to the ‘Spirits Watches’ line, featuring watches created with drops of unique alcoholic beverages inside.

Wealth Solutions has created, with different Swiss watchmakers, the ‘Cognac Watch’, a watch with a drop of the oldest Cognac in the world – Gautier 1762 – and the ‘Rum Watch’, with a drop of Harewood 1780, the oldest rum in the world.

The Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862 was used in the project courtesy of Sukhinder Singh, a famous British collector of rare alcoholic beverages and owner of The Whisky Exchange.

The whisky was opened in the presence of a public notary. The opening ceremony was hosted by the luxury five star H15 Boutique Hotel in the Historic Hall, situated in a 19th century building in Warsaw, and was attended by Charles MacLean, a whisky expert, writer and Master of the Quaich; Edward Bates, a spirits expert and Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac educator; Jean-Marie Schaller, the founder and creator of Louis Moinet; Michał Kowalski, deputy president of Wealth Solutions; and Łukasz Baranowski, deputy president of Wealth Solutions.
