Tomintoul, the highest village in the Highlands now has the biggest bottle of whisky in the world. The enormous bottle of Tomintoul 14 year old single malt whisky was the idea of Dru McPherson (proprietor with his wife Irene of the Clockhouse Restaurant and owners of Whisky Castle Tomintoul).
Somehow i liked this picture of it, which was in The Sun newspaper, not sure what it was that caught my eye.
Dru McPherson and Mike Drury made the monster malt to put the village of Tomintoul, Banffshire, on the map.
The enormous 1½metre bottle holds an incredible 105.3 litres of 14 year old Tomintoul single malt whisky.
The bottle was created by a German glassmaker, it is a 7mm thick pyrex bottle with a massive cork which was specially made to fit.
Dru will display it in his Clockhouse Restaurant, while whisky shop boss Mike will sell normal-size replicas.
Dru, 47, said: "They will look like miniatures by comparison." He added: "The hardest part was watching the giant cork hammered in - we were dreading the noise of smashing glass."
Local MP Angus Robertson will unveil the record-breaker in the village.
