Rare Finds - Uncovering the World's Most Selective Spirits and Where to Find Them

A few extraordinary spirits are even more valuable in a world where special things are highly esteemed. These spirits are made with a lot of care and skill, and they are so rare that they are like hidden treasures. People who know and appreciate good spirits want to find and keep them. Let us find out more about these fantastic spirits.

  1. Yamazaki Mizunara 2022 Release

This edition is a unique sort of whisky made by Suntory. It is made from carefully picked malt whiskies that have aged for a long time in special Japanese oak barrels called Mizunara. These barrels give the whisky an exceptionally spicy and woody flavor, with traces of sandalwood and agarwood. This makes it distinctly Japanese.
  1. Old Rip Van Winkle 25

If you think waiting 23 years for bourbon is quite a while, imagine waiting for Old Rip Van Winkle 25. This whiskey started maturing in 1989. After some time, it moved somewhere else to age even more. In 2014, they stopped it from getting older by storing it in special tanks.

They just made 710 bottles from 11 barrels, and each bottle initially cost $1,800. But, if you get it from somebody who isn't the original merchant, it could cost you about $15,000. The bottle comes in a fancy wooden box with a metal plate that says it was snoozing for 25 years. Plus, the box lid is produced using barrels similar to those used to age the whiskey.
  1. Glenfiddich 50 Year Old Whisky

The Glenfiddich 50 is a unique whisky. It was made 50 years ago and first sold in 2009. 500 bottles were made, and 50 were sold worldwide every year. It is been a long time since it was first sold, so every one of the bottles is likely sold out now.

If you find one of these bottles, you are in for a treat! It comes in a fancy silver bottle from Scotland and a certificate signed by the maker. However, it is truly costly — back in 2012, the maker said it was worth more than $26,000!
