Whiskey experts can spend millions of dollars in order to get the perfect bottle of your favorite drink …
However, what definitely removes us away from the normal tact is the latest news that the Yamazaki whiskey decanter has been sold at a price of $430,000. Japanese whiskey is a favorite choice for many people for years, and its recent sales have made it the most expensive in that nation.
The bottle in question is fifty years old, the first edition. Only fifty of these bottles are available all over the world, and two are already sold at incredible prices.
In total, Yamazaki whiskey was produced in three editions, the second and third being bottled in 2007 and 2011. Still, what makes this whiskey so special is the process of its production. The exclusive Yamazaki whiskey is first matured in mizunara barrles – a Japanese oak, before it is bottled and released for sale. Because of this, it has a unique taste in which it is known all over the world.
Last year, in August, another bottle of fifty-year-old Yamazaki whiskey was sold at a price of $343,000 in Hong Kong, making it the second-most expensive in Japan. Decorated with the words “Suntory Single Malt Whiskey Yamazaki“, it comes in a beautiful wooden box that you will be proud to watch.
