1928 Macallan Single Malt Sold for $27,000 At Auction

From the Shanken News Daily: "A bottle of The Macallan 50-year-old sold for £17,500 ($27,000) at Bonhams Whisky sale in Edinburgh yesterday—the highest price ever paid for the storied single malt Scotch. The price exceeded projections by around 50%. Only 500 bottles of The Macallan 50-year-old—distilled in 1928 and bottled in 1983—were produced. The previous highest price for the The Macallan 50-year-old was £13,500 ($21,000)." 

Bottle number "003" of 500

At the same time, The Macallan and the Sergeant Pepper cover designer and Godfather of British Pop Art, Sir Peter Blake, have teamed up to celebrate his 80th birthday by producing a very special collection. The specially designed oak box is divided into eight sections, each featuring a "backdrop and artefact designed, inspired or chosen by Sir Peter Blake, a miniature of The Macallan distilled in that decade (1930 through to 2000’s), with labels designed by Sir Peter and a small book of illustrations and text about Blake’s life."

We'll drink to that. Cheers!
