World's Largest Whisky Collection To Go On Display
Brazilian collector, Claive Vidiz has brought the world's largest collection of whiskies back to Scotland. The collection numbers 3,384 bottles, and took Mr. Vidiz over 35 years to assemble. Now the collection has been bought spirits maker Diageo which has in turn loaned the collection to the Scotch Whisky Experience on the Royal Mile next year. The bottles are currently stored in a high security location in Scotland, after making the 6,500 mile journey from Sao Paulo on a container ship. At the Scotch Whisky Experience, a museum, shop and restaurant next to Edinburgh castle, the whiskies will be displayed in a custom made vault. BBC News quotes Mr. Vadiz as being very happy that his entire collection has found a home without having to be split up.
