This 5-foot-11 bottle of scotch is potentially worth £2m
It holds 311 litres of Scotch!
This is a giant, record-breaking bottle of 32-year-old Macallan scotch. It’s taller than one of your favourite TV presenter - 5‘11’’ -and it’s worth around 2 million British pounds.
A few weeks ago, Fah Mai Holdings Group -a company that focuses on whisky-related investments - teamed up with Rosewin Holdings and Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky to create the (Guinness World Record-certified) "Largest Bottle of Scotch". It holds 311 litres of scotch. It took over an hour to fill, using a blend of whisky from two different casks. And by the way they’ve used top-shelf Scotch, namely 32-year-old Scotch from the Macallan distillery. As you’d imagine, it is worth a pretty penny.
"To put it into perspective, a single 70 cl bottle of original 30-year-old Macallan Oak sells for £4,000 to £5,000," said Fah Mai owner Louis Haseman. "What we have here in our mega bottle alone is around 444 of those. We'll leave you to do the maths on this." That makes it worth anywhere between £1.7m and £2m.
The bottle will be auctioned later this year and 25% of the proceeds will be donated to Marie Curie, a British charity benefitting people facing terminal illnesses.
