One of the most rare aged bottles of whiskey, and certainly the world's most expensive, is the Macallan in Lalique Cire Perdue, which will be auctioned off at Sotheby’s New York for an estimated $150,000. At about 65 years old, the rich brew is made from single malt Scotch with sherry-seasoned Spanish oak.

Whiskey aside, the Lalique decanter itself is made of crystal with the artisan technique of "cire perdue" or "lost wax." The Macallan in Lalique Cire Perdue is a palatial bottle modeled on a 1820s decanter, decorated with designs inspired by the Macallan Scottish estate.
