Montage Beverly Hills, a chic luxury hotel located in the famous Golden Triangle near Rodeo Drive, has launched a new lounge called £10 (Ten Pound), famed single malt distillery The Macallan’s only official outpost in the United States. The name £10 has been derived from the Scottish ten pound currency note which features a rendering of The Macallan distillery’s antique copper stills.
As a tribute to this, The Macallan 12 Years Old single malt is priced at 10 Scottish Pounds per glass – about $16. £10 is the only establishment in the world where one can enjoy a glass of the world’s most expensive whisky, The Macallan 64 Years Old single malt, priced at a modest $60,000 per shot. Reservations are required with two allocated seating times which guests may choose and a $50 per person minimum spend on alcohol. Not quite the issue for those looking to taste the 64-year-old single malt!
