Dalmore Trinitas breaks six figure price barrier

Published:  14 October, 2010

The first bottle of whisky in the world to break the six figure price barrier is the 64 year old, Dalmore Trinitas.

The two of only three bottles produced were sold at £100,000 and acquired by a luxury whisky lover in the US and a renowned whisky investor in the UK.

The third bottle will be sold at the Whisky Show in London at the end of October.

Industry experts claim that if the bottle was sold by the glass in exclusive restaurants and clubs, it could fetch up to £20,000 for a typical 50ml dram.

Trinitas is believed to contain some of the rarest and oldest stocks of whisky in the world, some of which have been maturing in the distillery on the shores of the Cromarty Firth for more than 140 years.

The Dalmore's renowned master distiller Richard Paterson used his unrivalled expertise to fuse a range of these exclusive malts together.

He said: "The hand of time has been generous and rewarding with the malts I chose to use. They allowed me to create a taste sensation which will never be repeated again and will only ever be available to those that own these bottles. You cannot put a price on that."
