“Dating from the late 1800s, it is believed to be one of the rarest bottles of malt whiskey in the world, according to Kenneth Thomas, proprietor of the shop near Swindon.
‘A customer brought it in in a carrier bag about three years ago,’ he says. ‘She left the bottle with me in the hope that I could find out some more about it.’ Mr Thomas put a price tag of £20,000 on it, but after further investigation, and the realisation that it is probably the only bottle left from the Nuns Island Distillery, it is now priced at a staggering £100,000, but this is negotiable, he says.”
UPDATE: Arkwrights, who are selling the whisky, have been contacted by a resident of Galway. This chap has a bottle of 20 year old whiskey liqueur from the same distillery – Persse’s very old liqueur whisky – which too is now for sale at ?100,000. Hat Tip to Generosus for the trackback link.
