Christie’s auction house sold its most expensive bottle of single malt whiskey last week in London. The whiskey, a Dalmore malt called The Kildermorie, is 62 years old and is one of 12 bottles to have been created by Richard Paterson. The master blender used casks of single malt that were laid down in 1868, 1878, 1926 and 1939. The whiskey was sold for a whooping £114,000.

The bottles were released in 2002 by the Highland distillery and each of them were named after a Dalmore characteristic. The Kildermore is actually a loch that supplies water to the distillery.

Earlier in the year Southby’s also sold a Dalmore bottle for £91,650. However, both this bottle and the one sold by Christie’s lose out to the Dalmore’s bottle sold at Singapore’s Changi Airport for £125,000.
