Julia Kollewe


A 54-year-old Scottish single malt whisky will go under the hammer on Wednesday and is expected to sell for £150,000, setting a new record for the pricey tipple.

The oldest whisky ever to come from the Isle of Islay, the bottle of Bowmore 1957 is one of only 12 bottles in existence. The exceptionally rare bottle will be the main lot at Bonhams' Whisky Sale in Edinburgh. A second bottle will be auctioned at Bonhams in New York on 28 October.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
