WHISKY GALORE BOTTLES OF WHISKY UP FOR AUCTION
Whisky Galore bottles of whisky up for auction at Glasgow auction website, Scotch Whisky Auctions - bids can be offered up until the 5th May 2013.
The sinking of the SS Politician off the island of Eriskay in the Outer Hebridies on the West coast of Scotland in 1941 encouraged a famous book and thereafter a film called Whisky Galore.
The current bid for two bottles (ie; 4th May 2013) is £3200. The bottles were retrieved from the 8000 tonne SS Politician's cargo.
In 1987 a professional diver retrieved eight bottles from the wreck of the SS Politician and sold them on for £4000 - not a bad pay day! These two bottles in the ongoing Glasgow auction website are both from the original eight retrieved by the professional diver.
Two rare bottles of whisky and a huge piece of Scottish history for the right bid and surely a solid investment.
