When you go to Costco, you think about buying things like cereal in bulk, gallons of milk, or huge tubs of peanut butter.
But in one Arizona Costco, you can buy a $17,000 bottle of Macallan 60 Years Old Single Malt.
According to MyFoxPhoenix.com, only 400 bottles of the rare aged scotch whisky were made, and there are only 72 for sale in the U.S. They got a closer look at the only bottle for sale in Arizona.
The Macallan distillery has been making world class scotch whisky since 1824. In 2011, the company released the Macallan 60 Years Old Single Malt, the latest edition of the company’s Lalique Six Pillars Collection, which celebrates different aspects of the process of making Macallan.
French crystal house Lalique is behind the unique crystal decanter, designed with elements drawn from the Macallan stills --such as the copper around the stopper and and rivet-like features on the bottle.
While $17,000 might sound like a lot, the price at this Costco is apparently a steal. Bottles typically sell for about $20,000.
That breaks down to about $1000 a shot, if you're counting.
