Rare Bowmore Scotch to be sold for stiff price9/20/2012
Wine isn’t the only libation that gets better (and pricier) with age. On Oct. 10 in Edinburgh, Scotland, a bottle of Scotch is being sold at auction, and its final sale price might cause its new owner to crack the bottle immediately for a stiff drink. The spirit in question is a bottle of Bowmore 1957, a 54-year-old single malt Scotch so rare that its entire inventory consists of 12 bottles. The minimum price for the bottle is 100,000 pounds ($162,000), which would be a record for Scotch. The previous record was set last December when a 55-year-old bottle of Glenfiddich was sold for 46,850 pounds ($76,000). [Source]
