Macallan 1928 50 Year Old Anniversary Malt 75cl
Lot number: 111-07477
Winning bid: £82,000
The Macallan distillery was founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and school teacher. Now owned by the Edrington Group, The Macallan prides itself on its Six Pillars, which include its curiously small stills, very narrow 'cut' of new make spirit and exceptional cask management. It is the most sought after whisky for collectors, regularly setting records at auctions all round the world.
A new £140 million subterranean distillery and visitor centre on the Easter Elchies estate was opened to the public in the summer of 2018 and has since won several awards for its architectural quality; with its exciting features including glass walls of vintage whiskies, a circular pod of copper pot stills, and a Boutique reflecting those in Dubai and Heathrow airports.
The bottle comes with a signed letter from Allan Shiach, the chairman of the Macallan at the time. In it, states this was the oldest and rarest whisky to have been released from the distillery. Aged in Macallans finest casks for over 50 unbroken years, it was bottled at cask strength from just three casks dated between 1926 and 1928!
