Black Bowmore Aston Martin DB5 whisky sells for $118k
That's what I'd call a "pretty penny"
A few months ago, Black Bowmore Whisky and Aston Martin worked together to create this gorgeous (and presumably tasty) bottle of Black Bowmore x Aston Martin DB5 1964. Only 27 bottles were made but only 25 were put on sale and the bottle you see here was just sold at auction (with Sotheby's) for $118,750k.
Jonny Fowle, Sotheby's Spirits Specialist, believes this to be a "high-concept marriage of British craftsmanship. Sotheby's has set records for both Bowmore and Aston Martin* in recent years and we are delighted to offer the first opportunity for collectors to buy this hybrid bottle at auction in our very first 48-hour only sale for spirits".
Bidding for the 48-hour sale kicked off on February 8, at 12 PM GMT and the bottle was eventually sold for $118k, which is within the $100k-$200k ballpark that Sotheby's estimated.
