A rare bottle of 1926 Macallan Scotch whisky was sold at auction in London for approximately $2.7 million, setting a new record as the most expensive bottle of liquor ever sold at auction. The bottle is one of only 12 produced in 1926 that were decorated with labels painted by Italian artist Valerio Adami in the 1990s. Its high value is due to its extreme age (over 90 years old) and rarity, as it was not produced for commercial sale originally. Only 40 bottles were produced from Sherry casks that had aged for 60 years.

Federal Judge Blocks Montana's Controversial TikTok Ban, Citing Constitutional Concerns

A federal judge in Montana has blocked a new state law that would have banned TikTok starting on January 1st, 2024, which would have been the first statewide ban of TikTok in the US. Montana Governor signed the bill into law in May 2023, arguing it would protect Montanans from surveillance by the Chinese Communist Party. However, the judge ruled that Montana failed to show how the ban would be constitutional. The judge said Montana seemed more interested in targeting China's role in TikTok rather than actually protecting consumers. US lawmakers have previously raised national security concerns about potential Chinese government access to TikTok user data.
