A bottle of Scotch whiskey dating back to 1926 worth at least €1.4 million is set to go up for auction next month at Sotheby’s in London. Macallan 1926 is considered by experts to be the “Holy Grail” among whiskies.
Experts estimate the value of the Macallan bottle dating back to 1926 at approximately 1.4 million euros. The bottle will be auctioned at Sotheby’s next month on November 18. There are only forty bottles of The Macallan Adami 1926. The whiskey was distilled in 1926, spent sixty years in barrels and was bottled in 1986. The label on the bottle is also a gem. Italian artist Valerio Adami designed the poster.
John Fowle, head of Sotheby’s global spirits department, calls The Macallan 1926 “the one whiskey that every auctioneer wants to sell and every collector wants to own.”
This is not the first time that Sotheby’s has sold a bottle of Macallan. In 2019, a bottle was sold for 1.7 million euros, the most expensive bottle of whiskey in the world. The auction house did not specify who the buyer was.
