Rare Collection of The Macallan Whiskies Sells for $1 Million
There’s something incredible about a smooth whisky from The Macallan that words cannot describe, but when you’re faced with an entire collection of such intoxicating beverages, you just go crazy in more ways than one. A set of some of the brand’s rarest whiskies, housed in limited-edition Lalique crystal decanters, was auctioned at Sotheby’s Hong Kong just last week.
The owner ended up paying as much as $993,000 for this unique collection, raising the bar for whisky aficionados everywhere. The collection consisted of six marvelous decanters, as well as six miniature bottles from the Macallan’s Fine and Rare series, six pairs of exquisite Lalique whiskey glasses, and even autographs from the Macallan’s master blenders. What more could you ask for in this lifetime?
The Macallan in Lalique Legacy Collection actually marks the end of an era, with the brand’s prestigious Six Pillars range coming to an end. The unique collaboration between the Macallan and Lalique has resulted in some outrageous and magical products that collectors went crazy about – for good reason.
The aforementioned price tag stands proof that quality work, attention to detail and absolute mastery of the Lalique craftsmen and the Macallan team should always be the focus of our attention and possibly cash.
