Aston Martin that you can drink for 253,000 euros

Inside this unique Aston Martin-designed bottle lies a 52-year-old Bowmore whiskey, which will be auctioned off at Sotheby’s on May 26th. The collaboration between Aston Martin and the legendary Scottish distillery dates back to 2020, with the launch of the DBX Bowmore Edition – a spectacular SUV limited to just 18 units, personalized by Q, Aston Martin’s customization service.

The interior and certain areas of the body featured copper inlays with the Bowmore brand, using copper from the original still used to make the whiskey, adding even more authenticity to this limited edition. So go ahead and indulge in a sip – this whiskey is definitely worth it!

The nascent collaboration between the two distinguished brands encompasses a pair of components: the glass decanter bottle and its distinctive stopper, both ingeniously devised by Aston Martin, in conjunction with Bowmore’s 52-year-old whiskey. The lid is wrought from carbon fiber by means of an extraordinary technique, which imparts a texture evocative of the Mokume-Gane method of Japan.

This veneer emulates the natural appearance of stratified timber or unprocessed rock, akin to the waterside location of the Bowmore Distillery. The whiskey, another consummate creation fashioned from the distillery’s most venerable stock, largely originating from the 1960s, an epochal age for this Scottish liquor.
