Two bottles of Macallan 60-year-old whisky, each expected to fetch between HK$3.6m - 4.6m, are going up for auction at Bonhams Hong Kong on May 18. One of them has a label designed by Peter Blake, who is best known for designing Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album.

The label of another bottle of 1986 Macallan was designed by Valerio Adami, an Italian Pop Art artist. He is famous for using bold colours and black lines in his art.

The whisky was distilled in 1926 and bottled in 1986. Only 12 bottles of each label were made and they were gifted to Macallan's most valuable customers. The 1986 Macallan Whisky offered at the sale are two of the 24 bottles produced. These bottles last appeared in auctions in the late 80s and the two bottles that considered the holy grail of Macallan are expected to break records.
