Qatar-owned London department store Harrods has launched a collection of rare whiskeys which has a retail price starting at over $1.5m.

The Knightsbridge luxury store has partnered with whiskey maker The Dalmore to create the new collection which consists of 12 bottles and comes with a price tag of £987,500 ($1,532,011).

The Dalmore Paterson Collection contains rare bottled dated from 1926 to the 1990s and each bottle is handcrafted with full-lead crystal and has engraved silver on the outside. The new range was part of the revamp and relaunch of Harrods’ Fine Spirits Room.

“I’ve been working with Harrods closely for the past 40 years and have established an excellent working relationship,” Richard Paterson, master distiller for The Dalmore, was quoted as saying by the Luxury Daily website.

“Together, we wanted to offer fans of The Dalmore and Harrods customers an exciting collection of whiskies… Harrods is the only store in the world to offer their customers access to the rarest collection of whiskies,” he added.

Qatar bought Harrods for a reported £1.5bn ($2.34bn) in 2010.

Qatar selling alcohol....isn't that in direct conflict with their self-professed religion of Islam...or does money come first?

But wait, I already know the answer to this one.
