Thieves have stolen the first batch of Shetland whisky - before a single bottle has reached the shops, according to reports.

A consignment of 360 cases of Muckle Flugga was stolen from a depot in Hampshire, where it was waiting to be shipped overseas to VIP shareholders, the Scottish Daily Record reported today (9 July).

It is understood the robbers cut through the walls of the warehouse in Bordon and stole the batch, worth an estimated GBP30,000 (US$59,000).

The whisky, made by drinks company Blackwood, is a blend of three eight-year-old malts from across the north of Scotland.

It is matured on the isle of Unst for 18 months, making it the first ever whisky to be produced on Shetland.
