Aston Martin Celebrates With $50,000 Bottle Of Whisky

1964 is the year in question, and for Bowmore, it was the year that the 240-year-old distillery moved from coal fires to steam for heating its stills. This culminated in a special single malt called Black Bowmore, a spirit so rich and decadent that only around 6,000 bottles have ever been made available. This sixth release is, therefore, something special, and as such, each unit comes in a special bottle – featuring a genuine DB5 piston – handcrafted by Glasstorm, a 50-year-old bespoke contemporary glass studio from North East Scotland.1964 was also the year that the greatest Bond car ever came to life. Speaking of the connection between Bowmore, Aston, and 1964, AM’s executive vice president and CCO, Marek Reichman, says, “This exciting new association with Bowmore gives us the perfect opportunity to celebrate a vital part of our star-studded history by combining the unrivaled appeal of the iconic DB5 with the cultured flavors of this world-renowned single malt.”
