Port Ellen whisky

This week, just under 3,000 bottles of Port Ellen whisky, from the island of Islay, will go on sale. The price? £1,500 a bottle. The Port Ellen distillery was closed down in the early 1980s, during a downturn in the whisky market. Today, that market is booming, and due to its scarcity these bottles will fetch a very high price indeed.
