Pair of 1926 Macallan whiskies sold for record $1.2m

2018 has been quite a year for sales of expensive whisky. Back in April, Dubai Airport-based retailer Le Clos set a world record for the most expensive bottle of whisky ever sold following the purchase of two 1926 bottles of The Macallan for $1.2 million.
With records breaking throughout the year, the final benchmark was set in November when just one bottle of the same whisky with a hand painted design by the Irish artist Michael Dillon sold in London at Christie’s for £1.2 million (US$1.5m).
