Whisky Could Fetch $250K at Auction

A luxury bottle of rare whisky lovingly distilled over 54 years is going under the hammer in a city auction house next week with an estimated price tag of up to £150,000 (US$242,000). The cost of one nip would pay for a ticket on a luxury cruise liner – the bottle would buy you a house. The Bowmore 1957, being sold at Bonhams on Queen Street, is tipped to break UK records as the most expensive bottle of whisky ever sold at auction – and experts believe it may even best the current world record.
