To give you an idea of how exceptionally rare this bottle is, the very first one was sold at Sotheby’s Hong Kong Auction for CAD $250,000.00.
“It is an honour to have been given the privilege of introducing this rare whisky to the Alberta market,” said Andrew Ferguson, Owner of the Kensington Wine Market, in a press release.
“The whisky, matured for very literally a lifetime, is a piece of liquid history, setting a new milestone for the Scotch industry!”
There are only 249 other bottles, and they are being released at the same price globally, for an astonishing $140,000.00 CAD.
“Four generations of my family have been nurturing the contents of this bottle for the past eight decades,” said Richard Urqhart of Gordon & MacPhail, in a press release.
“It’s time for the rest of the world to share in this remarkable experience,” he added.
For any scotch enthusiasts out there, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
