A bottle of the world’s oldest and rarest Japanese whisky has been secured by Dan Murphy’s – and is going under the hammer with a hefty price tag.

House of Suntory’s Yamazaki 55 was originally only available to whisky enthusiasts based in Japan and were made available through a lottery where the winners still had to pay $37,000.

This year, another 100 bottles were released across the world before it will cease to exist.

Dan Murphy’s in Australia has secured one bottle and in partnership with Langton’s, it is going to be auctioned.

A single bottle of the rare whisky currently has a recommended retail price of $90,000, but has sold for more than $1 million in Hong Kong before.

Dan Murphy’s have decided to let the market decide on the price, by hosting the online auction on November 15.

“We want to offer Australian collectors the fairest shot – pardon the pun – of acquiring this release of a lifetime which is why we have decided to host an online auction,” Dan Murphy’s Managing Director Alex Freudmann said in a statement.
