Thank You, Global Central Bankers: Bottle of Whisky Sells for a Record $1.1 Million

Today,  someone paid a record of just over $1.1 million, for a 750-milliliter bottle of single malt whiskey described as “the Holy Grail” of the dark alcoholic spirit, reports The New York Times.

The 60-year-old bottle of Macallan Valerio Adami 1926 is “one of the rarest and most desirable bottles ever produced,” according to a specialist at Bonhams, the auction house in Scotland that made the sale.

The identity of the private buyer was not revealed. But a Bonhams spokesman said on Wednesday that the person was from Asia.

The sale is the second time this year that a bottle of whisky has gone for a record amount. In May, a bottle from the Macallan Valerio Adami 1926 edition fetched 8.6 million Hong Kong dollars, about $1.1 million, at Bonhams in Hong Kong.
