This P 3.22 Million Bottle of Whisky is an Aston Martin Collaboration


Bowmore Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky and Aston Martin have unveiled their first collaborative creation: the Black Bowmore DB5 1964. With only 25 bottles for sale, this will be an exceptionally rare bottle of single malt whisky.

For Bowmore, 1964 is arguably one of the most significant points in the distillery’s 240-year history. The arrival of a new boiler saw the distillery enter the modern age of distilling as coal fires made way for steam in heating the stills. It was the first distillation from this new boiler that produced the spirit which was to become the Black Bowmore.

Over the years Black Bowmore has become one of the rarest and most sought-after single malt whiskies ever created. This latest release represents only the sixth bottling of this single malt. Since 1993, only around six thousand bottles of Black Bowmore have been made available, thus adding to its desirability.

For Aston Martin, this was the era of their most iconic car. Launched in 1963 to considerable acclaim, the Aston Martin DB5 is now widely regarded as “the most famous car in the world,” not least by virtue of its links to the world’s most celebrated secret agent in 1964.

The whisky is bottled in a unique, handcrafted vessel. The bottle itself is handcrafted by Glasstorm, a bespoke contemporary glass studio, based in North East Scotland.

The Black Bowmore DB5 1964 is presented in a handmade presentation box; itself a work of art.  Inspired by the distillery’s coastal home, the deep blue color and wave embossing evoke a true sense of place. Created from the finest string-grain calfskin, featuring a custom solid brass latch and hinges, plated with nickel, reflective of the DB5.

If you need to ask, a bottle of this Black Bowmore DB5 1964 will set you back £50,000 or about P 3.22 million.
