The week in pictures

It feels like rarely a month goes by that whisky maker The Macallan doesn’t break some kind of auction record. Last year, the distillery managed to shift a bottle of 1926 60 year old at Christie’s in London for £1.2 million (US$1.5m).

And this week, Whisky Auctioneer has said that its sale of The Macallan Lalique Six Pillars Collection set a new record for Scotch sold online.

The collection of four bottles of the 50-60 year old malts in Lalique decanters were sold across four lots for a combined total of £296,500.

This exceeds the £272,000 realised by four bottles from the same series sold by Whisky Auctioneer in November last year.
