Finally, a whiskey bottle our casters would actually drink

Monday, Jun 27, 2022

We love scotch. Scotchy scotchy scotch. Here it goes down. Down into our bellies. But seriously, folks. When you’re in the complex business of engineering the world’s largest casters on the planet, it can feel like you’ve got the weight of the world on your shoulder. Literally. So indulging in a wee tipple of premium firewater after a long day of calibrating and problem-solving can really fire up the creative juices.

But finally finding a bottle of whiskey worth enough to get stacked on our production shelves right next to, say, our giant Colossus casters? Well, that’s just inspired.

It’s the world’s largest bottle of whiskey, according to Guinness World Book, and it’s a true brother from another mother. Dubbed “The Intrepid,” this 1989 Macallan single malt stands nearly six-feet tall and was recently sold at auction for approximately. $1.4 million, making it one of the most expensive bottles ever bought. Weighing approximately 82 gallons (or about 444 standard bottles worth of whiskey), Intrepid took reportedly more than an hour to fill.

The bottle was created by a group of whiskey connoisseurs and exploration buffs. That explains the face of the bottle—it’s plastered with the faces of 11 of the world’s most celebrated explorers). Because who among us isn’t thirsty for new discoveries?

Good luck drinking this one dry.
