The Macallan 1926 Fine & Rare

Macallan 1926 webAlmost a year later in October 2019, The Macallan once again broke its own auction record when a bottle of The Macallan Fine & Rare 60 Years Old 1926 was sold during a Sotheby’s auction.

Offered by a private American collector, the whisky had been expected to sell for between £350,000-£450,000 (around US$450,000-US$578,000).

However, the bottle smashed its pre-auction estimate and set a new record for the most expensive whisky at auction with a closing sale price of £1.5m (US$1.9m).
