Scotch whisky estimated to fetch over $110,000 at auction

This could be the world's oldest single malt Scotch whisky

ever to be bottled

Location: London, England

It's around 80 years old

and made by the independent whisky maker Gordon & MacPhail

The decanter and oak case were designed by architect Sir David Adjaye

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ARCHITECT AND DESIGNER OF THE DECANTER AND CASKET, SIR DAVID ADJAYE, SAYING:

"I took that as an opportunity to really think about the unique milestone that Gordon and MacPhail have achieved by even producing whisky that was drinkable after 80 years. It's beyond drinkable, it's sublime. I thought about it as a piece of architecture. I think, really, in a way, for me it's an architecture in the miniature."

The whisky is estimated to sell for $110,000 - $221,000

when it goes up for auction at Sotheby’s
