In more pricey Scotch news, a 4ft 9ins tall, 105.3-litre bottle of Tomintoul whisky, believed to be among the world’s largest, is going up for auction, and is expected to fetch more than £15,000.

Due to be sold by auctioneer Just Whisky, the bottle of 14-year-old Tomintoul, which contains 5,250 drams, is predicted to break a number of records.

Weighing in at over 180 kilos, the specially-commissioned bottle holds the equivalent of 150 standard 70cl bottles.

Bottled at 46% ABV in 2009, it has a huge cork, oversized label and needed a team of 14 people to help fill and seal it.
