Massive Bottle Of The Macallan The Intrepid To Go On The Block


The world’s largest bottle of Scotch whisky – a massive 311 liter-container of a 32-year-old Macallan single malt called The Intrepid – is set to go up for live online auction on May 25, 2022 at Edinburgh-based auction house Lyon & Turnbull.

The Intrepid was officially certified by Guinness World Records in September 2021 and the 311-liter, nearly six-foot-tall bottle contains the equivalent of 444 standard 700ml bottles. The former record-holder was a 228-liter bottle of The Famous Grouse whisky in 2012.

The Macallan’s The Intrepid was matured in two casks at The Macallan’s Speyside warehouse for 32 years, bottled at 43% alcohol by volume [86 proof] and was named after a collection of 11 adventurers and explorers depicted on the bottle label.

If the winning auction bid exceeds $1.6 million, 25% of the proceeds will be donated to the Marie Curie charity.

Additionally, a small number of bottle sets comprised of a collection of 12 bottles, each filled with the remaining 32-year-old Macallan whisky from the same casks used to fill the 311-liter bottle and including a replica of the main bottle design, along with individual versions dedicated to each explorer, will be available.
