Mike Raymond, owner of Reserve 101, Houston’s premier whiskey bar has spent nearly the last two years chasing whispers of a previously undiscovered collection of Glenmorangie 1963 single malt whiskey. Only 600 bottles of the Glenmorangie 1963, the world’s first extra matured single malt whiskey, were bottled in 1987. The collection was thought to be finished until a remaining 50 bottles were found in a corner of a Glenmorangie warehouse in the West Highlands, Scotland.

While most of the vintage has gone to private collectors and bars around the world, Reserve 101 Is the only bar in Texas to acquire the rare whiskey. Raymond expects that whiskey aficionados from all over the country will visit the Houston bar for a taste. However, a sample of this rare collection comes at a steep price — a single shot will cost $550 — so only serious whiskey enthusiasts should venture the trip.
