The Macallan M becomes world’s most expensive whisky
The Macallan ‘M’ achieves a New World Record price at US $628,000 at Sotheby’s Hong Kong.
Sotheby’s said it sold a bottle of Macallan for HK$4.9 million ($630,000) in Hong Kong, setting a record for the most expensive bottle of single malt whisky sold at auction.
The Macallan ‘M’ Decanter 6-litre Imperiale attracted global interest at a Sotheby’s auction, the firm said in a statement which identified the buyer only as an Asian private collector.
Only four Imperiale “M” Decanters were ever made by the Macallan distillery, Sotheby’s said.
