The Glenturret 50 Year Old in Lalique 1972


This lot includes:

  • 1x The Glenturret in Lalique 50 Year Old (Decanter #1)
  • 1x Exclusive Matthew Draper Artwork housed in carved wooden box from Method Studio
  • 1x Exclusive Experience for 4 people to visit The Glenturret Distillery including a tour, tasting of ultra rare Glenturret whiskies and dinner at their Michelin starred restaurant


Crafted by Whisky Maker Bob Dalgarno, formerly Whisky Maker at The Macallan Distillery, the whisky was drawn from the last remaining cask from Glenturret’s 1972 vintage, making this the oldest cask in their possession. As a single cask it has spent the last five decades maturing in a refill European Oak Sherry cask which gives the whisky a beautiful antique oak colour. This 50 year old whisky is housed in a striking, hand carved black crystal decanter produced by luxury French crystal house, Lalique and designed by Marc Larminaux, Artistic and Creative Director at Lalique, to mirror the craftsmanship and skill that went into producing such an extraordinary whisky.


In addition to the decanter, the winner of the lot will also receive a unique artwork, devised in collaboration with Method Studio who commissioned Scottish artist Matthew Draper for the project. Edinburgh based Draper works with his hands and his heart, responding emotionally to the landscape; instinctively communicating the interplay between light, water, and land. On this occasion, the artwork titled ‘Loch Turret’ depicts the ancient freshwater Loch Turret that provides The Glenturret Distillery with the water that will become its whisky. This beautiful, one-off collector’s item has been created from pigments and inks that have been harvested by charring and burning the 50 Years Old cask staves - a variation on an ancient ink-making technique based on tannic reaction that is a nod to the values of provenance, prowess, and passion, which The Glenturret places at the heart of its whisky making.


The winning bidder will be invited to The Glenturret in Scotland to enjoy a tour of the newly refurbished distillery and warehouse experience with Distillery Manager Ian Renwick, an exclusive tasting of some of their rarest whiskies including the 50 Year Old with Managing Director John Laurie and dinner in The Lalique Restaurant, the first Michelin starred restaurant in any distillery.
