A Scottish based buyer has paid GBP14,850.00 ($29,000) for a bottle of Glenavon ‘Special Liqueur Whisky’ which is believed to have been bottled by a long defunct Speyside Distillery between 1851 and 1858. The vendor was a woman from Northern Ireland. However, an expert has raised a question over the bottle’s provenance due to the machine made bottle and elaborate label printing which suggest a bottling date of late 19th. century.

The record for a single bottle of Scotch remains at GBP26,000 ($50,100) which was paid in 2002 for a bottle of Dalmore, which had been matured for 62 years prior to bottling.
