67 years, or two generations. That’s the age of the 1952 Tullibardine Custodian Collection Single Malt Scotch. One 700 millilitre bottle is worth just over $40,000. If that seems to high for the bottle, you could have a glass for about $1900.
Impressively, one of the seventy bottles produced can be found in Outlook Saskatchewan. Curtis Andrew is one of the bottle’s owners.
“We received it in mid 2018. The bottle its self is made of Baccarat Crystal. Baccarat crystal is a fine crystal, one of the best in the world. The bottle and box its self has a value of about $5000.”
Curtis and the owners first showed off the impressive collection piece at the International Night of Whiskey in Regina. While the group of owners are lovers of all thing scotch, the 1952 Tullibardine was never meant to be open. But they will still have the chance at tasting the scotch.
“The set actually comes with a gold key,” Curtis adds. “That key unlocks a locker at the Tullibardine distillery. Inside is a piece of the cask that the scotch came from. That’s ours to keep and have. After that we get to go into a tasting room where they pour you a dram and you get to taste it and experience it without opening the bottle.”
If you're trying to get a sense of what it may taste like, Tullibardine Distillery is known for their malty flavour.
