1926 Macallan Valerio Adami

Bonhams broke auction record with £848,750 ($1.1 m) sale of Macallan Valerio Adami 1926 at its Whisky Sale on 3 October.
“The holy grail of whisky”, which dates back almost a century, has been sold for £848,750, including a hammer price of £700,000 and a buyer’s premium of £148,750.
This super rare whisky was distilled in 1926 and then bottled in 1986. Macallan commissioned Peter Blake and Valerio Adami to design the labels for the limited edition bottlings – 12 of the Adami and 12 of the Blake labels. This 750-milliliter bottle of 60-year-old whisky was on of Adami’s 12. It is not known how many of them still exist.

The identity of the private buyer was not revealed. But a Bonhams spokesman said on Wednesday that the person was from Asia and had made the bid over the phone.
Bonhams whisky specialist, Martin Green, said: “The Macallan 1926 60-year-old has been described as the Holy Grail of whisky.
“Its exceptional rarity and quality puts it in a league of its own, and the world’s most serious whisky collectors will wait patiently for many years for a bottle to come onto the market.
“It is a great honour to be offering this amazingly rare whisky at our Edinburgh sale.”
