The week in pictures

An exceptionally rare single bottle of 1972 Brora is set to go under the hammer in Hong Kong next Friday. The expression, praised by experts worldwide, is the oldest official bottling of Brora ever to come up for sale and is the only bottle to have been drawn from the cask. Collectors of rare malts and investors from around the globe are expected to battle it out to secure the bottle which has been taken from an ex-Sherry butt stored at a warehouse in Scotland. Pictured is Donna Methven, production team leader at Diageo’s Global Supply Centre in Leven (where the bottle was labelled).
