“This is one of the rarest bottles of single malt to come up at auction in recent years,” Martin Green, whisky consultant at Bonhams.

“It’s the first time I’ve seen this particular bottle in over 20 years in this field.” The Scotch, which is though to have been hidden during the time of Prohibition in the US, will go up for auction at Bonhams’ whisky auction on 12 November, in Edinburgh.
