Leading cork producer Corticeira Amorim has revealed that it provided the premium corks used to seal the world’s most expensive whisky. Only three bottles of the £100,000 Dalmore Trinitas 64 were released last month and two have already been sold to private collectors — one in the US and one in the UK.
The Dalmore distillery is renowned for housing some of the oldest and rarest single malt whiskies. The Trinitas 64 is a combination of spirits from the 1868, 1878, 1926 and 1939 vintages topped up with a vintage from the 1940s.
The packaging of the Dalmore Trinitas 64 reflects the brand’s aristocratic heritage and positions the whisky alongside the world’s most luxurious goods.
Three handcrafted crystal decanters were commissioned to house the rare whisky. The superbly crafted stopper comprises a rich dark timber, silver finishing and at its core a natural cork body — the top-of-the-line Prestige cork from Corticeira Amorim’s Top Series range.
