Connoisseurs of wine must be familiar with the adage that aged liquor is never poured into any new containers for the fear of spoiling it! But company William Grant & Sons beg to differ. The famous Scottish distillers have decided to package their 50-year-old single malt Scotch into new bottles and sell the ‘new product’ for $16,000. By the way, this step makes the scotch the second-most expensive whiskey in the whole world.
Again, the exclusivity of the product can be learnt by the simple fact that the distillers have decided to release a limited edition of only 50 bottles. Also, each liquor bottles comes sitting comfy in specially designed, leather-bound treasure boxes done in hand. The flap of this box also carries the history of the whiskey.
Quite naturally, there is a global interest in the sales of this well-aged liquor with buyers coming from all parts of the world. The first bottle will go on sale on 1 September through Aelia at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport T2E.
