The coveted 50-year-old single malt whisky clocked a total of 28 bids, with the winning bid breaking the previous record of RM96,000.
There’s an all-new record for the highest price ever paid for a single bottle of whisky. The title now belongs to Bottle No. 10 of The Glenlivet Winchester Collection Vintage 1966, which sold for RM116,000 last week.
One of only 100 bottles in the world, the coveted 50-year-old single malt whisky clocked a total of 28 bids, with the winning bid breaking the previous record of RM96,000 held by Bottle No. 3 of The Glenlivet Winchester Collection Vintage 1964.
Besides going home with the collector’s item, the winner, a Guardian of the Glenlivet, will enjoy a trip for two to Scotland, the home of single malt whiskies. The trip includes money-can’t-buy private tours and tastings at The Glenlivet distillery.
In addition to the main auction, another lucky winner, Guardian Victor Liew went home with a bottle of The Glenlivet 25 Year Old XXV worth RM3,000 as a prize for correctly guessing the winning bid of the Vintage 1966.
Four online fans of The Glenlivet who also correctly guessed the final bid price each won a bottle of The Glenlivet 15 Year Old, worth RM550.
The Vintage 1966 is the second release in the Winchester Collection, joining the Vintage 1964 to become one of the most sought after and exquisite whisky collections in the world. Global pricing of The Glenlivet Winchester Collection Vintage 1966 stands at approximately USD 25,000.
