Macallan ups the ante. Who’s got $90,000?January 8th, 2010
I turn 50 in June, so I suppose I could also title this blog “What to buy me for my birthday.” (Not that it would do any good.)
I found out from Luxist.com that Harrods is selling what’s called the Macallan Linley Whisky Case. (Click on the picture for a larger view.) To quote Harrods:
Macallan commissioned renowned craftsman Viscount Linley to produce this exquisite whisky cabinet. Unique in every way, this is the only one in existence, was produced solely for Harrods and contains six bottles of vintage Macallan malt whisky from 1937, 1940, 1948, 1955, 1966 and 1970.
It is handcrafted from English Burr Oak and also includes six bespoke Linley crystal tumblers as well as a cigar humidor. This is pure luxury. Antique dealers will be dying to get their hands on this in the future making this the perfect investment.
You can find the link to the Harrods site here, if you want to buy it for me form my birthday and lay it away until June. I promise to share the whisky with you. I’ll even buy the cigars.
