A rare bottle of Scotch whisky has sold for a world record £1.5m at auction in London.
The Macallan 1926 60-year-old single malt from cask number 263 had been estimated to sell for between £350,000 and £450,000.
Sotheby’s, which held the auction, did not release the identity of the buyer.
The previous auction record for a single bottle of Scotch was £1.2m, set by another bottle from the same cask in November last year.
Sotheby’s described The Macallan 1926 from cask number 263 as the “holy grail” of whisky.
