Duty free customer spends $200,000 on bottle of scotch

Have you ever regretted buying that £50 bottle of premium vodka from duty free with the last of your holiday money? One person who may be feeling  the same way is a Chinese businessman who spent $199,000 on one bottle of single malt. The man in question was travelling through Singapore's Changi Airport when he saw the 62-year old bottle of Dalmore whisky. It was at this point that he immediately set up a bank transfer to cover the deposit on the bottle.

The purchase would make the bottle one of the most expensive ever sold and it is one of only 12 bottles in the world. The bottle will remain safely in the glass case until payment has been received in full!
