For A Cool $45,000 You Could Give Your Loved One A 50-Year-Old Bottle Of Scotch This Christmas
If you’re looking for something special for the person who has it all, then all your gift giving problems could be solved in an instant. Drinks Network, Australia’s online wine and spirits marketplace, is auctioning off an exceptionally rare fifty year old bottle of Glengoyne Highland single malt Scotch whisky, that has an estimated reserve of a mere $45,000.
This limited-edition single malt is the pinnacle of Glengoyne’s unhurried and uncompromising approach to whisky making, as Scotland’s slowest distilled malt. In fact, since 1833, Glengoyne has the slowest distillation process in Scotland that takes a third time longer than other distillers. After five decades patiently maturing, this exceptional whisky has a richness and depth of aromas and flavours rarely encountered.
The prized fifty year old scotch comes complete with a special crystal decanter, featuring an engraved goose emblem representing the geese who migrate to the Glen each Winter. Only 150 decanters have been produced, with each individually numbered. Hidden within the beautiful solid oak and gold display box is also a 25ml sample of the fifty year old whisky, as well as individually numbered books which are hand signed by Robbie Hughes, Glengoyne Distillery Manager.
“It’s often not easy to surprise someone, who has it all, with something that they will truly appreciate. This rare Glengoyne fifty year old Highland single malt Scotch whisky, will sure do the trick” Michael McShane, CEO of Swift & Moore, distributors of Glengoyne in Australia. And if $45,000 is slightly out of your budget, the site also has a host of other great tipples to choose from, palatable for all budgets and tastes.
