I found some stories online today about Glenfiddich shipping their 50-year-old, special Scotch. It seems of the 50 bottles produced, only six bottles found their way to the United States.
Most of the stories focus on the price of $27,000/bottle. I have to admit that I wouldn’t pay anywhere near that amount for a bottle of any spirit but then again I do not have unlimited resources.
So it begs the question, how much WOULD you pay for a single bottle of spirits/wine/etc.? Ans, what is the most you’ve ever paid for a bottle? Please include bottle service orders in your discussion.
I myself have yet to break the $100/bottle barrier. That limit hasn’t been imposed simply based on price however. I haven’t gone higher because I have found SO MANY GREAT RUMS under that price point.
Would I like to try Appleton Estate 50 Year Old Jamaica Independence Reserve Rum ($5549), Bacardi Limited’s 150th Anniversary Rum ($2000) or even Black Tot “Last Consignment” British Royal Naval Rum ($1000)? Sure, but with
my question is how many people are able to buy those whisky in the world
There is a very limited retail market for a product like this but the wealthiest 1% demands extremely high-end, ultra-exclusive spirits so all the big name companies must have something to offer…see Appleton Estate 50 Year or Angostura Legacy.
