Nearly 40,000 of Britain's most closely guarded secrets - that's wine bottles to you and me - are held in the vaults of Lancaster House, just off The Mall in London. The details are so sensitive that the Government has resisted several attempts under the Freedom of Information Act to have them made public.

Independent
"Since Tony Blair took office in 1997, we can reveal, New Labour has spent almost £1m of taxpayers' money on replenishing the supplies cellared under Lancaster House. At any time there are 37,000 to 39,000 bottles tucked away in the official wine stock, including 180 different clarets. But oenophiles eager to know more have been rebuffed: because its holdings are so extensive, the Government claims, that revealing exactly what it has, and how much, could disrupt the entire market for fine wines."
