A pair of rare Macallan whisky bottles that date nearly a century has been sold for a record-breaking US $1.2 million in Dubai.

Described as two of "the most unique bottles of whisky ever produced," The Macallan 1926 was distilled in 1926 and aged for 60 years in sherry-seasoned oak barrels before being bottled and released in 1986.

Of the only 40 bottles produced, a dozen were given to British artist Sir Peter Blake, known for co-creating the Beatles' iconic album cover for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Another 12 bottles were gifted to Italian artist Valerio Adami.
