A lot of Macallan single malts sold for nearly $1 million, the company said.

According to a press release, the Macallan in Lalique Legacy Collection – a set of six crystal decanters containing single malts aged from 50 to 65 years old – sold for $993,000 at Sotheby’s in Hong Kong.

The April 2 sale’s net proceeds will be donated to Hong Kong based and other Asian charities, the company said.

In addition, the Legacy Collection included six Macallan Fine and Rare miniatures; two from each of the 1937, 1938 and 1939 vintages (signifying the zenith of Lalique’s contribution in the French Art Deco period) and six pairs of Lalique Macallan glasses, each serial numbered to commemorate the partnership.
