The sale of bottle number one of Ainnir quadrupled the previous record (held by Teeling) when it sold for £41,004 (US$54,183) during an online charity auction via Whisky Auctioneer.

Bottled at natural cask strength (60.3% ABV), the no-age-statement whisky is made from organic Scottish barley and is matured in a combination of five casks. Only 1,320 bottles of the inaugural single malt were created.
