Stiff price for a shot

The Cairns Post - - WORLD -

A BOT­TLE of 92-year-old whisky has sold for a world record price of $2.1 mil­lion – or $76,000 per glass.

The sin­gle-malt scotch was pro­duced in 1926 by The Ma­callan dis­tillery in the Scot­tish High­lands.

It spent the next 60 years ma­tur­ing in a former sherry cask be­fore be­ing bot­tled in lim­ited num­ber in 1986. It is claimed to be the finest cask of whisky ever ma­tured.

Christie’s auc­tion­eers, which sold the bot­tle, said: “This bot­tle is the holy grail for whisky col­lec­tors.”
