I’m excited to announce that this post will be the first in many regarding the world of spirits. I’m a total noob when it comes to fine spirits, so I’ll be learning the basics in the next few months. So, I hope you follow along and find the content valuable.
I figured I’d start with something that, though not incredibly practical, is a fun and informative in fact. So, what is the most expensive whiskey in the world? For you curious whiskey lovers out there, it is official: the world’s most expensive whiskey sold at auction is the Macallan 64 Year Old Lalique.
From “Drinks International”:
“Guinness World Records has awarded The Macallan 64 Year Old the accolade of ‘most expensive whisky sold at auction ’for US$460,000 (£291,125)… The ‘one-of-a kind’ Lalique crystal decanter housed the oldest and rarest Macallan ever bottled by the distillery, a 64 Year Old single malt whisky. The auction took place at Sotheby’s in New York in November 2010.”
