Single Malt Scotch Whisky by The Balvenie - Priced At HK$108,000Friday, November 13, 2009 Mary Anne Velasco
It was our (my boyfriend and me) first time to ever set foot in Hong Kong on July 5, 2009. We arrived there from Paris, France and had to wait for some hours for our connecting flight to Manila, Philippines.
While waiting, my boyfriend and I agreed to have an early dinner in one of the restaurants located inside the airport. After the sumptuous meal, we had some more hours left which we spent roaming around some shops inside the airport. Although we were not interested to buy anything from the wine shop, we went in anyway. I was checking some cute little bottles of wine in one corner when my boyfriend came up to me, held my hand, brought me to the expensive wine section and pointed his finger to a particular bottle of wine. I got curious and so I stepped nearer to the bottle and got so shocked! It was a bottle of Single Malt Scotch Whisky by The Balvenie. The bottle had a chain attached to its neck and a price tag of HK$108,000 (more or less £7,100 GBP/US$14,200) on it. It was too pricey that I was even scared to touch it. (I touched it anyway)
That bottle of Single Malt Scotch Whisky I touched was one of the only 151 bottles which was resting for over 40 years at The Balvenie Distillery located in Speyside, Scotland. Cool!
