Whyte & Mackay has launched its rare The Dalmore Constellation Collection – The 60s Set, costing almost CA$140,000, in Canada.

The Dalmore has launched a rare range of Scotch whiskies distilled in the 1960s in Canada

The limited edition set of four rare vintages distilled in the 1960s will go on sale at the British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch’s flagship Signature Liquor Store in Vancouver today.

Available for CA$139,000, the set includes: Vintage 1963, aged 46 years; Vintage 1966, aged 45 years; Vintage 1969, aged 42 years; and Vintage 1969, aged 43 years.

Only 67 to 237 bottles will be released for each vintage, while this is the first time all four bottlings have been released as a range. Each expression is contained in a hand-blown crystal decanter, engraved with the year of distillation, age and cask number and adorned with a solid silver royal stag.

Whyte and Mackay claims the collection is an asset for whisky investors.

“With instability in the stock markets worldwide, investors are looking for alternative sources of asset appreciation,” said David Robertson, director of rare whisky at The Dalmore Distillery.

“Whisky as an alternative investment has shown remarkable growth, driven by the limited releases of some of the world’s oldest and rarest stocks from distilleries with impeccable heritage, exceptional product quality and exclusivity.”

It was revealed in August last year that The Dalmore Paterson Collection – which at £987,5000 is said to be the world’s most expensive collection of Scotch whiskies – had failed to find a buyer over a year since its launch.
