The whisky which features a label designed by acclaimed, British pop artist Sir Peter Blake, is expected to fetch between £500,000 - £700,000 at auction.
|Macallan 60 Year Old - 1926|
Only 12 bottles with the label designed by Sir Peter Blake were released. One sold in May 2018 at Bonhams Hong Kong for £751,703. At the time, it set a world record for a bottle of whisky sold at auction, and is still the highest price paid for a Macallan 60 Year Old – 1926, from the Blake series.
Commenting on the whisky, Martin Green, Bonhams Whisky Specialist, said: "It’s dark honey-gold in colour, and is almost inconceivably smooth with a luscious hint of dry-sweetness in the malt."
Other highlights in next month’s auction, include a Laphroaig 14 Year Old - 1970, bottled in Scotland for Osteria Apostoli, Milan, and two bottles of Dalmore 50 Year Old - 1926.
