The Collection

I started collecting whisky bottles and miniatures in late 2013 as I realised that some bottles were rather difficult to obtain or not readily available at my local stores. As time went by, I also picked up certain bottlings which I believed (and still believe) would present a rather good return on investment in years to come.

As of this moment, none of these bottles and miniatures are destined to be opened by me and have been purchased purely for their investment potential.

That being said, I have done some research into the provenance and availability of these bottlings and there is a definite method to the madness.

The purpose of this page would be to document the evolution of my collection over time, as I seek and acquire more bottles and miniatures.

NOTE: Due to the ephemeral nature of the miniatures, I have decided to remove some of them from this page and only showcase the bottles for now. I will eventually include the rest of the miniatures back in here though, so please do keep an eye!
