Recently, a 62-year-old malt whisky sets a new record as the most expensive bottle of whisky sold by auction house Christie’s. The Kildermorie, was sold at £114,000 (PHP 7,678,698), doubling its pre-sale estimate of £40,000- £60,000.

This level of sale for a single bottle of whisky is unprecedented at Christie’s, astonishing the auction house’s head of wine department, Christopher Munro.

Named after the distillery’s water source, The Kildermorie was only one of the 12 bottles crafted by legendary master blender Richard Paterson. It was released in 2002, produced from casks of single malt in 1868, 1878, 1926, and 1939.  

Meanwhile, the 12 Pointer, one of the 12 bottles, was sold for £91,650 by Sotheby’s last September in London.

Also earlier this year, an unnamed young Chinese collector purchased the Dalmore Paterson collection at £987,500 or PHP 66.8 million. The 12 individual bottles of rare whiskies is said to be the world’s most expensive set of Scotch.

A Dalmore flagship store is located in Uptown Parade, beside The Palace in Uptown Bonifacio, Taguig City.
