Tens of thousands of pounds of whisky has been stolen from a distillery in Moray.
A number of whisky bottles were taken from the visitor shop at Aberlour Distillery between Wednesday December 22 and Wednesday January 5.
Police said the highly unique bottles would be “easily identifiable” as no other bottles from the batch have yet been sold.
Detective Constable Adam Stockwell of Elgin CID said: “Enquiries into the incident are ongoing and I urge anyone who has information or who reside close to the distillery and heard or saw anything suspicious between these dates to contact Police Scotland immediately
“This is a high value theft and we would be keen to speak to anyone involved in the local whisky selling market, as these bottles are quite unique in that no other bottles of their batch have been sold meaning they would be easily identifiable.”
