The Glenturret Unveils 50-Year-Old


Share on Pinterest

The Glenturret has released a 50-year-old single malt – their oldest whisky ever.

The Glenturret 50 Years Old was matured in a refill sherry cask, bottled at cask strength of 40% alcohol by volume [80 proof] and is said to contain notes of apple, dates and honeycomb.

Only 150 bottles of The Glenturret 50 Years Old were created but Sotheby’s will auction bottle number one during its Whisky in Lalique sale (auction ending on September 9, 2022), which will be the first whisky auction to exclusively offer Scotch in Lalique. The first decanter will be the only bottle to come with artwork, created in collaboration with Method Studio, which commissioned Scottish artist Matthew Draper for the project.

The remaining 149 bottles of The Glenturret 50 Years old are being made available for $47,000 per bottle.
