Wealth Solutions, as part of its latest of providing luxury spirit-watches, has revealed its newest addition in collaboration with Swiss watch brand – Louis Moinet. They will be using the world’s oldest whisky discovered so far, a bottle of Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862. This bottle was sourced from Sukhinder Singh, a rare spirits collector and owner of The Whisky Exchange.

The bottle was opened in front of a Notary Public last week in Warsaw, Poland.  The opening ceremony was attended by Charles MacLean, whisky expert and Master of the Quaich; Edward Bates, Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac educator; Jean-Marie Schaller, founder and creator of Louis Moinet; Michal Kowalski, deputy president of Wealth Solutions; and Lukasz Baranowski, deputy president of Wealth Solutions.

There will be 50 watches, 40 of which will have steel cases, priced at £14,625 each and 10 with red gold cases, priced at /£37,375 each. All of these watches will contain a drop of the Old Vatted Glenlivet 1862, currently recognized to be the oldest whisky in the world.

The Whisky Watch will be launched on 8 April.
