The oldest whisky in the world has been sold!

An 81-year-old bottle of Macallan whisky went to auction in London recently.

The 1940 bottle went for 300 thousand British pounds or over 338 U.S. American dollars.

The sale of the whisky comes with a tasting at the Macallan Estate and proceeds to benefit The Macallan Artisan Apprenticeship Fund.

If you had the money, would you bid on something like this? Who makes the best whisky?
