Largest whisky bottle-world record set by Tomintoul Distillery

  TOMINTOUL, Banffshire, UK -- Tomintoul Distillery has produced a bottle of whisky weighing in at 164kg and stands some 144cm tall (just under 5ft), filled by hand with 105 litres (the equivalent of 150 standard bottles) of 14-year-old Tomintoul Speyside Glenlivet Scotch-setting the world record for the Largest whisky bottle .
   A German glassmaker created the 7mm thick pyrex bottle, and a massive cork was specially made to fit. And after filling the gigantic bottle, the huge cork had to hammered into place with a massive mallet.

   The idea was the brainchild of Dru McPherson and Whisky Castle shop owner, Mike Drury, and led to a collaboration with Tomintoul Distillery to produce the world’s largest whisky bottle .

   Duncan Baldwin, Brand Development Director at Tomintoul Distillery said: “We are delighted to have been successful in achieving this world record for the Largest whisky bottle ."

    "It was quite nerve-racking, filling and labelling such a large vessel by hand and especially so when sealing the bottle with the largest cork I have ever seen, as it had to be hammered in with a mallet, but the exercise went very well. It should be a great talking point for Tomintoul Distillery, the village and its visitors.”

   The Tomintoul Speyside Glenlivet monster whisky bottle will be on permanent display at the  Clockhouse in the village square at Tomintoul.
