What are you drinking this weekend? I don’t care how many car dealerships your dad owns, chances are, you’re probably not going to be drinking something that goes for around $1,000 a shot. However, someone in South Africa is.
A few days ago, an anonymous buyer purchased a bottle of 50-year-old Glenfiddich. That’s some high end whisky for those of you who don’t know. Not only is it high end, it’s actually the only bottle of its kind in all of South Africa. Given that, it’s no wonder why it’s so expensive.
Just how expensive is it? Well, the anonymous buyer, who we can safely assume has a shit ton of money, paid 300,000 South African Rand for it. That’s right around $30,000 USD. Think about that for a minute.
Depending on where you go to school, this whisky could be the equivalent to a pretty sizable portion of your tuition. You could buy a car with it; two if you want to drive a Kia or something. This is definitely sippin’ scotch.
Now, some people were bashing the buyer in the comment section of the original article. These detractors were calling him greedy for spending so much on a bottle of scotch. Some said he should use that money to care for the sick or the poor. Not to sound like a dick or anything, but it’s his money. If he wants to spend it on some high class liquor, more power to him. That’s his decision to make, not yours you wannabe Robin Hoods of the internet. Plus, considering he can drop that much on one bottle, I’m sure the buyer gives plenty to charity, if only to get rid of some of that extra cash.
This weekend, when you’re pounding shots of rail bourbon at your local watering hole, just think about that $30,000 bottle of scotch. Somewhere out there, someone is getting the most expensive buzz of their life.
