The liqueur is a 1989 Macallan single malt that spent 32 years maturing in oak barrels at Macallan’s Scotland distillery before being bottled in 2021. It is pale gold and has a sweet taste with hints of apple, precise the auction house.

It was sold to an international collector on Wednesday, according to Lyon and Turnbull.
The Intrepid project was born out of a collaboration between Fah Mai, a Thailand-based investment company, and Rosewin Holdings, a London-based company that invests in whiskey and other spirits.
The founder of the project, Daniel Monk, was inspired by his father’s “passion for adventure, exploration”, specifies the auction house. The bottle label depicts 11 explorers, including Ranulph Fiennes and Robin Knox-Johnston.
The auction will support several charities, including Marie Curie and Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), Lyon says.
