When life gives some people lemons, they make lemonade.

When the folks at Littlemill Distillery in Scotland got a lemon, they made one of the most exclusive whiskies in the world instead.

The “lemon” Littlemill got was a devastating fire that destroyed the distillery, which was said to be the oldest in Scotland. But from the ashes came 10 perfect barrels of 25-year-old scotch, which were blended, bottled and put on sale for $3,000 a pop. Only 250 bottles of magical elixir were made available in the U.S. by Loch Lomond Distillery, an independent Scottish distiller.

Hi, I’m Dan and I am one of the few lucky bastards who will ever taste it. If you hate me right now, I don’t blame you in the slightest. Learn the history of the whisky and see what happens when I take a sip in the video above. (Note: I can tell you that I am a terrible actor. Those tears of joy are entirely real.)

As they say in Scotland, slàinte!
