For all those who are wondering about the whereabouts of the Macallan in Lalique Cire Perdue Decanter, here is a little update on what this pricey decanter is up to. The exquisite decanter was created to travel worldwide, offering its unique blend at several auctions to benefit ‘charity: water’ – a nonprofit organization that promotes clean drinking water in developing countries. At every stop, a 10cl dram of the Macallan 64 year old (the oldest Macallan ever bottled) is auctioned. Setting records at every stop, the Macallan reached its record high when the10cl dram fetched $1,300,000 NT (US$41,000) in Taipei. This pricey sum for just 10cl of whisky has made it the most expensive miniature bottle of whisky ever sold.
The bottle is headed for Sotheby’s New York auction in November, where I am sure this current record will surely be broken.
