1940 distillation gets hefty 2011 price tag

Online retailer Master of Malt is the first to stock Glenlivet 70 year old, a single malt bottled this year by Scottish whisky merchant Gordon and MacPhail and launched in March with a price tag of £13,000 for a 70cl decanter or £3,200 for a 20cl miniature. Distilled on the 4 February 1940 during the height of the Battle of Britain, the spirit was filled into a single sherry cask, where it has rested for 70 years.

The whisky is presented in a hand-blown crystal decanter with a British hallmarked sterling silver stopper and base. The wooden boxes are handmade from Scottish Elm.
