One way to enjoy family this holiday season? Drinking a lot of Scotch.

Glenfarclas, the Highland distillery known for its sherry-influenced single malts, just announced the release of their Family Cask Trunk, a storage container filled with 50 200ml bottles from their well-loved Family Cask range.

Those Casks are extremely limited editions Scotches released every year; the trunk features all the vintages from 1954 through 2003. They’re certainly well loved — influential Whisky Bible author Jim Murray gave the Family line the “Single Cask of the Year” designation for his 2016 awards — and some vintages are now so rare that Glenfarclas sales director George Grant noted “some contained in the trunk are the last casks of their respective years.”

Encased in a gigantic custom steamer (modeled on old shipping luggage), the containers also feature tumblers, nosing glasses, three books on the family-owned distillery’s history, tasting notes on each year’s release and a water jug.

Each of the 60 trunks are on sale now for around $128,000.

(A little rich for your blood? Try a lot of Scotch in a healthier and cheaper way via The Dramathon, a marathon distance race from the Glenfarclas to the Glenfiddich distillery in October.)
