Re: The Speaker Michael Martins Whisky How valuable?
To the best of my knowledge:
The Sun newspaper did not buy the last bottle.
There were still a few left at the shop in Portcullis House (the secure building opposite Parliament where the MP's have their offices).
The last ones were bought on May 20, in the late afternoon, just after 5 o'clock.
Just for clarity, two forms of packaging were made, a beige/white (the original) and a green/white. The green/white was the replacement, intended to make this dob fit in more with the styling of the other Macallan bottles. The biege/white was going to be phased out but the resignation of the speaker meant that the plans were accelerated where all stocks were put up for sale at once, and disappeared very, very fast.
The green/white packages are therefore rarer as they were only on sale for a very, very short time, in very limited quantities, whereas the beige/white had been sold at the commons for years.
Value will only go up from here, as it is a very, very discontinued bottling. For those out there who were able to get their hands on a one, congratulations!
