    Now l know there's a small minority on here who like a drink, but can someone explain how anyone could pay £848.000 for a bottle of scotch, and why it commanded the price it attained.

    Crazy! Was just reading this. I suppose its the elite of the world that earn this in half a day, like us spending half a days wage on somthing special for an occasion... although most of us dont have the equivalent saveings these guys do!

    Easily. 

    It will be old, probably put into its first barrel before you were born.

    The mash from the finest barley. 

    From a small batch distillery.

    I've seen Brandy in fancy bottles,  boxed in even fancier cases, with prices over 2 grand.

    Crazy, but I guess someone buys them.

    Today, in a wholesaler,  I saw a Jereboam of Remy Martin with a price tag of 18 grand. 

    Just as well I could avoid paying retail...

    I have a bottle of whisky that was gifted to me by a good friend, the cost is in the region of £1000.  it is a Royal Salute 38 years old bottled in porcelain and gold plated stopper.

    The taste is fantastic.. i drink a glass with my son when we have something to celebrate.

    My usual tipples are Jameson or Highland park around the £20/30 mark .. but the above os something special.. and it tastes it.IMG_2954.png.e284427647b04f9b3a1cd027b08b820a.png

    Its a drink made to be drunk and enjoyed... Cheers to all
