I’m honestly speechless over this whisky. At the risk of eulogising, it is the best whisky I’ve ever had.

The Macallan 64 Years Old In Lalique Cire Perdue

A PRESTIGIOUS COLLABORATION

  • To mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of René Lalique, the founder of one of the world’s foremost crystal artisans, we combined the creativity and craftsmanship of The Macallan and Lalique to produce the world’s most valuable decanter of whisky. A decanter made by Lalique using the ‘lost wax’ procedure to create a truly unique, one-off piece of art.

    At the end of a world tour covering eight cities the 1.5l decanter was auctioned in co-operation with Sotheby’s on 15th November 2010 in New York. The winning bid raised $460,000 creating a world record with the most expensive whisky ever sold at auction. All proceeds benefitted charity: water to help people in developing countries by providing them with clean, safe drinking water.  In total the project raised over $600,000 and benefitted more than 30,000 people.
