World's most expensive scotch collection surpasses £10m

25 November, 2019

Vietnamese businessman Viet Nguyen Dinh Tuan has entered the Guinness World Records with the most expensive collection of scotch whisky on the planet.

His stash surpassed £10m according to experts at Rare Whisky 101 and consists of 535 bottles of the rare whiskies, kept in his personal ‘whisky lounge’.

“Every spare moment I get, I’m searching auction sites and trading websites to find famous and rare whiskies,” he said.

“Clearly this requires a lot of patience and no shortage of tenacity but I’m proud of my efforts. As for my collection, I have no intention of selling any of it. Not one bottle.

“In fact, I’ll continue to hunt for more old and rare bottles and add to and enrich it.”
