Rare Peter Black Macallan 60-Year-Old Just Sold

1926 Macallan

A bottle of the very rare Macallan-60 year old-1926, with a label designed by the eminent, internationally acclaimed, British pop artist Sir Peter Blake, has just sold at auction for £615,000 at Bonhams Whisky sale in Edinburgh.
The whisky lay at Macallan for over 60 years in an oaken cask brought from Jerez, before it was bottled in 1986. Only 12 bottles with the label designed by Sir Peter – most popularly known for co-creating the cover for The Beatles 1972 album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – were issued.

Describing the whisky Bonhams Whisky specialist Martin Green said, “It is dark honey-gold in colour, and is almost inconceivably smooth with a luscious hint of dry-sweetness in the malt.”
One of the bottles sold in May 2018 at Bonhams Hong Kong for £751,703 (HK$7,962,500). At the time, this set a world record for a bottle of whisky at auction, and is still the highest price paid for a Macallan-60 year old-1926 from the Blake series.
Other interesting items sold at auction include two 1926 Dalmore 50-year-olds, one of which surpassed its pre-sale estimate by £7,000 by fetching £27,563 – the other sold at £17,563 – plus a Springbank 1952 which sold for £18,813.
