Macallan Breaks Auction Record with Million Dollar Whisky

18 May 2018

With a bid of HK$8,636,250 (approx. $1.1 million), Macallan has retaken the title of the world’s most expensive standard sized bottle of whisky sold at auction. The bottle of Macallan Valerio Adami 1926 60 year old was sold at Bonhams, Hong Kong on May 18th, 2018 shattering the existing record set by Yamazaki 50 year old in January. The bidder, with paddle number 666, set a new record hammer price of HK$7.05million (Bonhams adds a 22.5% buyer’s premium) considerably higher than the HK$3.6–4.5 million estimate. This is a staggering 371% higher than the previous record set at Sotheby’s, Hong Kong, which stood for 111 days. Japanese whiskies from Yamazaki and Karuizawa have held this record since 2015, with previous Scotch whisky record holders coming from Dalmore, Glenfiddich, and Bowmore. It’s been a long time coming for Macallan: a bottle of Macallan 1926 60 year old last held this record in 2001 when a bidder paid $21,874 in Glasgow.
