(Only a handful of bottles of the Gordon & MacPhail’s Glen Grant 72yr old exist and it has been described as one of “the most historically significant whiskeys ever produced.” The total production was limited to 290 bottles, with 200 sold before in pre-allocation before release. The rare and highly collectible whisky, which was presented in a hand-cut crystal decanter, was sold alongside a single one-off NFT artwork and its original by celebrated political cartoonist Harry Harrison, entitled ‘Year of the Dram 1948’ commemorating 1948  [the year the whisky was made] on 20 May 2021 in Hong Kong for a record HK $937,500 (just under £95,000) including buyer’s premium. The current value for the Glen Grant 72 is listed as $126,666.00 for the 1000 ml bottle.
