World’s Largest Bottle of Whiskey Sold for Almost $1.4 Million at Auction

The world’s largest bottle of whiskey has sold for approximately $1.4 million at the Lyon and Turnbull auction house on Wednesday.

The whiskey bottle called ‘The Intrepid’ stands at 5 feet and 11 inches and contains 82.16 US gallons or 311 liters, and is equivalent to 444 standard bottles.

The Intrepid is a 1989 Macallan single malt that spent 32 years maturing in oak casks at Macallan’s Scotland distillery before being bottled in 2021.

According to Lyon and Turnbull, The Intrepid has a sweet taste with notes of apple and was sold for $1.375 million to an international collector on Wednesday.

The Intrepid project was created by Daniel Monk, of Fah Mai and Rosewin Holdings, in memory of his father Captain Stanley Monk, and inspired by his passion for adventure, exploration, and a desire to help raise money for several charities.
