A rare Scottish whisky has sold for a world record-breaking £47,000 at auction.
The first bottle of Glenfiddich Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve set records as the most expensive bottle of whisky ever sold at auction.
The single malt was created in honour of Janet Sheed Roberts, the granddaughter of William Grant, founder of the Glenfiddich distillery.
Mrs Roberts celebrated her 110th birthday in August and is the oldest living person in Scotland.
Only 11 bottles of the 55-year-old single malt, one to celebrate each decade of Mrs Roberts' life - will ever be released to the public, and they will be sold at auction to raise money for charity.
The first bottle was sold for £46,850 at a whisky auction at Bonhams in Edinburgh on Wednesday, breaking the world record for the most expensive single malt Scotch whisky sold at auction.
The previous record was held by a whisky which sold for £29,400.
All proceeds from the sale will be donated to the international charity WaterAid.
Peter Gordon, Glenfiddich chairman and Mrs Roberts' great-nephew, said: "We’re thrilled the sale of this very special whisky raised such a significant amount of money for WaterAid.
"The Glenfiddich Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve is one of the rarest and most precious whiskies we have ever made.
"It’s a truly remarkable liquid, which would be impossible to make without the purity of Robbie Dhu spring water. It seems fitting to use our most special whisky to raise money for such a special charity."
