World’s largest bottle of single malt whisky sold for £15k
The world’s largest bottle of single malt whisky was sold at an online Christmas auction on Sunday for £15,000.
The 105.3-litre bottle of 14-year-old Tomintoul is nearly 1.5m (4.9ft) tall, weighs more than 180kg (396lbs) and would serve up about 5,250 drams.
The huge bottle holds 150 standard bottles of whisky and holds a 20cm (7.8in) cork, the BBC reports.
Graham Crane, director and co-founder of auctioneers Just Whisky, said prior to the sale: “Every now and then the opportunity to purchase a truly unique bottle of whisky occurs - this is one of those times.
“We’re delighted to be auctioning this supersized bottle this month and hope that the lucky buyer has either an appropriately sized stocking for Christmas if it’s a gift, or is planning a memorable Hogmanay celebration to welcome in 2020.”
