Fanastic Rare Whisky Collection Makes Journey from Brazil to Scotland

Brazilian Claive Vidiz amassed 3,384 bottles of Scotch whisky in a prolific 35 years of collecting (that’s 100 bottles a year, or about two purchases per week, every week for three and a half decades.) Now Diageo has purchased the entire collection, shipped it back to Scotland, and plans to show it at the Edinburgh Whisky Experience, BBC reports.

While the details of the terms of its sale to Diageo remain under wraps, the unique collection is described by whisky experts as “invaluable” and ranges from the most popular whiskies to some of the rarest.

Mr Vadiz said: “To split up a collection which I have devoted more than 35 years of my life to would have broken my heart so I am truly thrilled Diageo has purchased it in its entirety.”
