A whisky made to mark the 60th year on the throne of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II is on sale in Singapore for a mere S$250,000 ($198,500) a bottle – and it may well find a buyer.
No doubt it’s a premium sip. Only 60 bottles of Diamond Jubilee were made by the Johnnie Walker unit of Diageo PLC from a blend of whiskies distilled in 1952.
It’s also a premium price for Asian aficionados at the month-long Master of Spirits II event featuring specialty wine and liquor put on by luxury travel retailer DFS Group, part of the LVMH empire of high-end goods and services.
Singapore is the first stop this year for a series of DFS events highlighting a wide range of luxury offerings.
The city-state, home to the world’s highest concentration of millionaires, has become a playground for the global jet-set with casinos, expensive shops, fine dining, top hotels and showrooms featuring Ferraris, Lamborghinis and other supercars.
