Sotheby’s said it sold a bottle of Macallan for HK$4.9 million (US$631,850) in Hong Kong, setting a record for the most expensive bottle of single malt whisky sold at auction. 

The Macallan 6-liter “M” Decanter by Lalique, exceeded its HK$4 million high estimate and beat a previous record of $460,000 set by Sotheby’s in New York in 2010, the auction house said in a press release.

The Macallan sale, proceeds of which will benefit Hong Kong charities, helped boost total sales for the Jan 18 wine auction to HK$29.4 million, with 99.7% of lots sold.
