Ten of the most expensive spirits launches of 2017

29th August, 2017 by Annie Hayes

The Dalmore 50

Price: £50,000 (US$64,804)
The most expensive bottling on this list is an “exceptionally rare” Champagne-finished 50-year-old single malt launched in honour of distiller Richard Paterson’s 50th year in the industry.

Building on the celebrations surrounding Paterson’s milestone, The Dalmore 50 is the result of a partnership with four luxury houses: Champagne house Domaine Henri Giraud, crystal manufacturer Baccarat, jewellery house Hamilton & Inches and bespoke furniture company Linley.

The liquid has been matured in American white oak, Matusalem Oloroso Sherry casks from the Gonzalez Byass Bodega, and port Colheita pipes from the Douro region of Portugal, before it was finished for 50 days in “rare” casks from Domaine Henri Giraud – one of the only Champagne houses still maturing their wines in casks.

The Dalmore 50 is presented in a crystal decanter adorned with a solid silver stag created by silversmiths Hamilton & Inches, and held within a presentation case crafted by Linley.
