Hard To Find Whisky, an off licence situated in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter are selling a 50-year-old Macallan, that was distilled in the 1920s and bottled in the late 1970s.
The off licence’s owner, Jason Kirby, claims that when the bottle was first released in the early 1980s, it would have cost around £150, but the course of decades, its value has undeniably multiplied, making it one of the most worthy whisky investments ever made.
Jason began Hard To Find Whisky a mere three year ago, as a mail order company before seeing a market for a shop to be opened up.
Their for-sale produce start from double figures and shoot all the way up to four and five figures!
The shop that opened up on the corner of Spencer Street and Warstone Lane, is claimed to be the largest whisky specialist in the UK.
Justin Bourne, sales director at Hard T Find Whisky, commented on the shop’s placement: “We wanted to be in the Jewellery Quarter because it’s iconic and it’s important to us that people can park outside for 70p and pop in and grab a bottle.”
If you’d like to sample a tipple before you buy, you’re more than welcome to seat yourself at one of the barstools at the curved shop counter and try some.
Bourne said: “That doesn’t mean I’m going to give someone a £35,000 whisky to taste! We can’t offer ‘try before you buy’ on everything, but we can gauge what a customer likes and doesn’t like and advise accordingly.”
