The whisky marketing men have been having a field day over the last few years trying to ‘out market’ each other with massive whisky bottles. The latest to break the record for the world’s largest whisky bottle has been Famous Grouse scotch whisky that have just entered the Guinness book of records with a 228 litre whisky bottle which contains 9120 drams of scotch whisky. The enormous bottle of Grouse will be on display at Glenturret Distillery in Perthshire which is the home of Famous Grouse whisky.
The 5t feet and 5 inches high bottle was manufactured in the Czech Republic and takes the record from Jack Daniels which entered the Guinness Book of Records just a year before with a 184 litre bottle of the favourite American whisky. There is also the world’s largest bottle of single malt scotch whisky which is now held at the Scottish Whisky Experience on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile and contains 105 litres of 14 year old Tomintoul single malt whisky. This bottle is the most expensive of the big whisky bottle competition valued at over £5000. It was the brain child of Hoteliers in the tiny Scottish town of Tomintoul who believed the town was in need of tourist boost and laid the marketing idea out to the local whisky barons. As it was a win all round idea, everyone got behind it and the massive bottle of Tomintoul 14 year old single malt scotch whisky was born.
