Glenlochy Spirit Safe for sale at lfw...

Postby Mike Ralston » Wed Sep 24, 2008 10:48 am

Guys & gals,

Hava a look at the Loch Fyne Whiskies website; Richard is auctioning the spirit safe from Glenlochy distillery - starting bids at >£2000.

By golly I would love to have that beautiful brass box in my whisky room!

Are any forum posters going to place a bid?

No kidding Mike.

Sadly that is out of my price range at the moment. Really bad timing. :x

Looks like you would need to buy some Brasso for it.

Edit:

just to save folks from faffing around looking for it, I've brought this picture over from the LFW site:

There are other pictures in the news section if you want to explore further:

Current bid is £3800 and bidding ends mid-day Friday 10th of October.

I wish I had the cash (and the space!). It'll be interesting to see how much it finally goes for.

Anyone have any info on where the bidding ended?

The website simply states 'sold' with no other details.

Don't know the final price, but according to a Swedish forum the highest bidder resides in Sweden.
