Rare Macallan M Sold for $628,000 and Set a New Record at Sotheby’s Hong Kong

An extremely rare Macallan M recently sold for $628,000 at Sotheby’s Hong Kong and thus achieved a new world record for the most expensive whisky ever sold at auction. The world’s most sophisticated single malt whisky in a beautifully designed and meticulously crafted 6 liter crystal decanter beat the previous record – 64 Year Old the Macallan in Lalique Cire Perdue which was sold for $460,000 at Sotheby’s New York.

The gorgeous bottle is result of collaboration between designer Fabien Baron, Lalique crystal, and Macallan. This rare bottle features engraved autographs of Baron, Denz and Dalgarno, and is one of four specially crafted by Lalique. Each decanter took 17 craftsmen, including two with the prestigious title, “Meilleur Ouvrier de France”, more than 50 hours to complete. Two of the four bottles will be archived by The Macallan, while a private collector in Asia has snapped up the last one.

According to a statement by Sotheby’s, all net sale proceeds from The Macallan M will be donated to a host of local charities in Hong Kong.
