A 100-year-old bottle of Scotch whisky, discovered in a cupboard in the US and considered one of the rarest in the world, is going up for auction next month.

Auction house Bonhams believes the bottle of Old Pot Still Scotch Viking, from the Glencadam distillery, will fetch up to GBP5,000 (US$8,700).

"This is one of the rarest bottles of single malt to come up at auction in recent years," Martin Green, whisky consultant at Bonhams, told just-drinks today (3 October).

"It's the first time I've seen this particular bottle in over 20 years in this field." The Scotch, which is though to have been hidden during the time of Prohibition in the US, will go up for auction at Bonhams' whisky auction on 12 November, in Edinburgh.

Martin said it was possible that the Scotch was "perfectly drinkable", but said it would likely be bought as a collector's item. "This is a piece of Scottish history."
