 The  Macallan 1926 Fine and Rare” was ultimately one million pounds (around 1,157,000 euros). In autumn 2019, a bottling from the same barrel went under the hammer for just under 1.5 million pounds.

 The  whiskey comes from a legendary supply, for lovers it is the “holy grail”. In 1986 a total of 40 bottles were filled from the barrel, only 14 of which bear the iconic fine-and-rare label.

 The  spirit belongs to a collection of a total of 3,900 bottles put together by the US entrepreneur Richard Gooding. He had traveled to Scotland again and again for decades and had bought bottles from almost every whiskey distillery. More than 1,900 bottles were on offer, and the first part of the collection had already been auctioned a year ago.
