Sin­gle malt bid shock

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Opinion -

A cask of Scotch has sold for a world record £287,000 at auc­tion.

The 250-litre bar­rel of Ma­callan sin­gle malt has been ly­ing in a Spey­side ware­house for the past 30 years.

But whisky buffs bid the price to un­prece­dented heights in Hong Kong this week.

The win­ning of­fer of 2.4 mil­lion HK dol­lars plus com­mis­sion smashed the pre­vi­ous record of 1.95 mil­lion set in 2014.

Each dram costs around £40 or £1000 per bot­tle.
