Blog: Chris Brook-CarterDarling, I’ve found what I want for my birthday

Chris Brook-Carter | 16 August 2005

The last few weeks have seen virtually every drinks company on the planet issue their financial results of one sort or another. Presumably, considering a few were really quite impressive, some of you out there may be in line for a bonus of sorts. If you are stuck on what to spend it on, though, then allow me to make a suggestion.

The World’s most expensive Irish malt whiskey is currently up for sale. A bottle of what is believed to be the last surviving bottle from the Nun’s Island Distillery in County Galway, southern Ireland is available to buy.

Ken Thomas, who runs a specialist drinks store in England, told Reuters last week: “This woman walked in with the bottle in an old carrier bag and said she thought it might be worth money, and the more I looked into it the more exciting it became.”

Now, I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but having whetted your appetite, take a look here.

Bear in mind that it’s been available since the beginning of June, so he may take the nearest offer.
