Man hired to protect $100,000 in whiskey drinks it all instead


LINK /

quote:

A caretaker employed to safeguard $100,000 (£65,000) worth of vintage whiskey is being prosecuted after apparently deciding to drink it all instead. John Saunders, 62, is to stand trial accused of downing more than 50 bottles of the expensive booze over a 12-month period.


quote:

After a seven-month police investigation, the landlord brought charges against her former tenant whose DNA was found all over the bottles.


quote:

Saunders, who denies drinking the alcohol, said that the ‘whiskey probably evaporated and being that old, it was probably no good’

Who set that value? I call BS

That's $1,923/bottle, just cause it's old

American whiskeys (like bourbon and rye) tend to be much less collectible; the most valuable can go for over $1,000, but even rare American whiskeys tend to go for the low hundreds.

Badass to say you drank 100k in booze in one year.
