Rare Expensive Scotch Sold At Costco

Rare Expensive Scotch Sold At Costco

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX, Ariz. -

Costco is known for its bargains and people buying in bulk, but a new item at an Arizona store has people putting away their wallets.

It's a rare bottle of 60-year-old single Malt Macallan Scotch. It's the only bottle for sale in the area, and its one of 72 for sale in the entire United States. Only 1 in 400 were ever made.

The cost: 17,000 DOLLARS.

While $17,000 might sound like a lot, the price at this Costco is apparently a steal. Bottles typically sell for about $20,000. That breaks down to about $1000 a shot, if you're counting.

The Macallan distillery has been making world class Scotch whisky since 1824.
