Islay Single Malt Bowmore 1957 Sells for $160,000

From Shanken:

Islay single malt Bowmore has sold the first bottle of its 1957 vintage to an anonymous U.S. buyer for £100,000 ($160,000). The bottle of Bowmore 1957, one of only 12 produced, was sold at the Bowmore Distillery on Islay. Profits from the sale will be donated to five Scottish charities: Alzheimer Scotland; The Beatson Oncology Centre; Chas (children’s hospice services); Erskine (medical care for Armed Forces); and Marie Curie Cancer Care. Nine bottles of Bowmore 1957 remain on sale at the Bowmore Distillery; two others will be kept in the Morrison Bowmore archives.
