Now a limited collection of 1,000 unique The Macallan Sherry Oak 20 year old bottles will be sold, each specially labeled and containing a set of 10 portfolio prints unique to the Albert Watson Edition. You can purchase them for $10,800 (£700) each. And if that’s not unique, extravagant or expensive enough, then you may be interested in an even rarer bottling — one of 36 individually customized bottles of The Macallan 1946 expression (chosen for the date Watson first met his wife), with a signed one-off collectible platinum print, available for $15,500 (£10,000).
