A collection of whisky bottles bought as a birthday present every year since 1992 has sold for £44,000.
The impressive collection was owned by Matthew Robson, whose proud dad Pete bought him a bottle of 18-year-old Macallan single malt every year in celebration of his birthday.
Dad-of-three Pete, who lives in Milnathort, Perth and Kinross, was working for a company that manufactured some of the raw materials for Macallan, which made him choose the brand.
He decided to buy his son a bottle every year, but as the brand became more successful the price went up.
Over the years, Pete spent around £5000 on the whisky.
Now 28 and living in Taunton, Somerset, Matthew plans to use the proceeds of the sale to put down a deposit on a flat.
Matthew told STV News that he was “over the moon”.
He added: “I feel so grateful for what dad has done for me. He started a collection, so I can do the same for my kids when I have them.”
Full payment has been made and the bottles should be with their new owner by the end of the week.
Mr Littler said: “It never ceases to amaze me how strong the market is for Macallan.
“To be able achieve such a good price for Matthew is incredible and it is great to think how this money will set him and his family up for the future.”
