The Largest Bottle Of Whiskey On Record Went For $1.4 Million At Auction.

The World Record’s most expensive bottle of whiskey, called The Intrepid, was auctioned off for $1.4 million, as relayed by the auction house Lyon & Turnbull.

The bottle, standing 5 feet 11 inches and weighing 2 tons, was given the Guinness World Record in September 2021. It contains 82.16 US gallons of whiskey, or 311 liters. That’s the equivalent of 444 standard bottles — enough for 5,287 whiskey sours made with 2 ounces of whiskey each.

The 1989 Macallan single malt spent 32 years in oak casks at Macallan’s distillery before being bottled in 2021. It is a pale gold and has a sweet taste with notes of apple, the auction house says.

Lyon and Turnbull, an auction house in London, announced that a bottle of whiskey was sold Wednesday to an international buyer. The Intrepid project was created as a collaboration between Fah Mai, a Thailand-based investment company, and Rosewin Holdings, a London-based firm, which invest in whiskey and other spirits.

Daniel Monk, the founder of the project, was inspired by his father’s “passion for adventure, exploration,” according to Lyon & Turnbull Auctioneers. The label on the bottle features 11 explorers, including Ranulph Fiennes and Robin Knox-Johnston. The auction will support several charities, including Marie Curie and Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM).

The biggest bottle of whiskey ever offered doesn’t belong to this bottle, which does belong to the 60-year-old Macallan that sold for $1.53 million in 2018.
