Most expensive whiskies sold at auction

As hammer prices for rare Scotch and Japanese whisky soar ever higher, Mark Borgman of auction site Catawiki rounds up the most expensive whiskies in the world.

Macallan 50-Year-Old Lalique decanter (first release) – sold for £65,210

 

As hammer prices for rare Scotch and Japanese whisky soar ever higher, Mark Borgman of auction site Catawiki rounds up the most expensive whiskies in the world.

First released in 2006, there were only 470 Lalique decanters bottled with many being opened and enjoyed soon after they were released, meaning the number of bottles remaining is exceptionally lower than many realise and the rarity a lot higher.

Some of the casks used to fill the eye-catching decanter are much older than the stated fifty years. Due to its sell-out success, there are more Lalique Macallans are in the pipeline – we’ve had a tip off that the next release will be a 55 year-old.
