Dubai's new Le Clos store sells three bottles of whisky and wine worth $80,000

The newly opened Le Clos outlet in Dubai International Airport's Concourse D is celebrating the sale of two bottles of Macallan whisky worth $55,000 and a 70 year old bottle of Château Lafite which cost the princely sum of $25,000.

The sales are even more memorable as the store has only been open for three weeks.

One of the bottles of whisky sold for $40,000, in addition to The Macallan Fine and Rare 1962.

Le Clos describes the bottle of Château Lafite-Rothschild 1945 magnum worth 25,000 as "exceptional".

A favourite destination of wine and spirits collectors from around the globe, Le Clos is renowned for having extremely rare and unique products in its portfolio.

Iain Delaney, chief operating officer, MMI, comments: “Over the past few weeks we have seen some extraordinary sales at our newest store, and we are pleased to be the retailer of choice not just for our brand partners, but also for our discerning customers and collectors.


"We have an extensive range of products starting from $28 through to some of the rarest products in the world, some of which are showcased for the very first time in the region at our new Concourse D location.”

The sale of The Macallan ‘Golden Age of Travel’ Fine & Rare 1962 vintage and the Château Lafite 1945 magnum follows a Le Clos record-breaking sale in January of more than $361,000 for 19 bottles of Macallan’s Fine and Rare Collection of whiskies.

In November last year Le Clos also sold a Château Lafite Rothschild 1895.

The award-winning retailer has over 1,000 fine wines and 400 luxury spirits in its portfolio, catering to all tastes and budgets. Le Clos also offers unique services such as complimentary bottle engraving, in-store tastings and a concierge delivery service, highlighting the brand’s dedication to providing a world class shopping experience for its customers.
