The Glenlivet Cellar Collection 1964 – $2000

$2000 A Bottle!

$2000 A Bottle!

I just received an email from The Glenlivet Society about their newly released 1964 Cellar Collection, which will number fewer than three hundred bottles and priced at $2,000 a piece. While it pales in comparison to The Macallan Fine & Rare Collection, 1939 40-year, which was the world’s most expensive whisky at $10,125 a bottle… the $2,000 Glenlivet 1964 certainly is pricey!

The Glenlivet Cellar Collection is separate from their “Core Range” of the 12 Year, 15 Year French Oak, Nadurra 16, 18 Year, Archive 21, and XXV; and includes the 1959 Cask Strength, 1964 Cask Strength, 1967, French Oak Finish, American Oak Finish, and 1972 Cask Strength. It is the 1964 Cask Strength that gets the go ahead this year.

Is it worth it? The Glenlivet thinks so… here’s why:

BOTTLED at cask strength with no chill-filtration, the character of this spirit is uncompromised.

AGED for 40 years, each of the 14 casks in this batch was hand-selected by The Glenlivet’s legendary Master Distiller Emeritus Jim Cryle.

FEWER THAN 300 of these individually-numbered bottles remain in the United States.

AWARDED the Gold Medal in The International Spirits Challenge, the 1964 vintage makes an outstanding addition to every serious whisky collector’s cabinet.

So, who is going to get one of the three hundred bottles and when are you inviting me over? 🙂
