Private Whisky Club, 1494, Curates Luxury Liquor Collections

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New York, New York – Reported by Coleman Bentley for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

It is said the best things in life are the simple things, so it makes sense that the world’s finest whisky’s only need a single malt, a clean glass, and no ice; as simple as it gets…until now. With the debut of private whisky collector’s club, 1494, founder David Clelland has built a bridge between collector and distiller, making your hunt for mind-blowing malts just a little bit easier.

Named in honor of the year Scotland’s King James IV first ordered the distillation of single-malt Scotch whisky—the purest, most host-highly sought whisky on earth—1494 has spent the last few months acquiring not only fine whiskys, but also members, investors, and an exclusive clubhouse located in Midtown East. Of course, posh drinking quarters mean little if 1494 hasn’t already acquired single-malts worth enjoying within them. Thankfully, with the help of partners such as Range Rover, Nat Sherman, and even the British Consulate General, 1494 has been able to secure two liquid-amber jewels for its ever-growing collection: The Black Bowmore and the Macallan 50-year-old Anniversary Malt. Both acquired at Bonham’s New York auction earlier this summer, the Black Bowmore underwent a
43-year maturation while Macallan 50-year-old Anniversary Malt, born in 1928 and not bottled until over 50 years later, serves as the regal grandfather of the collection, dominating auctions and palettes with equal authority.

In the end, 1494’s knowledge, buying power, and top-shelf selection combine to provide members with one of North America’s most comprehensive and convenient single-malt collections. Straight from the old oak barrel to your tumbler, with 1494, Scotch whisky has a new king.
