Well, auction always gives you a greater price for your valuable items but this massive collection of whiskey bottles is winning hearts across. According to reports, a man collected around 9000 bottles of whiskey over a period of time and now has set up all for auction. Perhaps, when he started building his collections, he himself didn’t know that it would reach this number or that he would be able to have a collection at all. People suggest that this auction would fetch the owner millions of dollars because the collection is unique and some of the whiskeys wouldn’t be found being sold now.
The owner has not disclosed his name and has urged people to address him as Pat and according to Pat, he only bought the whiskey bottles to be enjoyed and drank with his friends and family. But, he never realized that those joyful moments would serve him to a collection of 9000 whiskey bottles.
In a statement recorded by one of the reports, Pat said, “I have always fought against whisky snobbery and wanted to create a collection for drinking and enjoying responsibly. Good whisky can be discovered literally anywhere and come at any price, wherein lies its beauty. The significance of this wide range of whisky styles, from single malts to grain and blends, is that it’s unlikely anybody will ever be able to replicate such a collection on the open market without directly acquiring large private collections. Many bottles included will simply never or at least rarely be available again. I was fortunate to start my collection at the time I did.”
