First I found this…

Which I stole borrowed from Fixed Gear Blog. There were no indications as to what it was, I just like old things. It appeared to be about Finnish beer; ‘Lager’ and the thirsty bear gave me the clue.

So I googled Finnish beer, there’s a lot of it.

That’s about when I found this…

The bottle of Glenfiddich Janet Sheed Roberts Reserve was sold at auction in London to an anonymous telephone bidder.

It is the second of 11 bottles to be released to the public.

The first sold at Bonhams in Edinburgh in December for a record breaking £46,850, topping the previous world record of just under £30,000 for a bottle of single malt.

The 11 bottles of the 1955 tipple are being released to honour Janet Sheed Roberts, the granddaughter of William Grant who founded the Glenfiddich distillery.

Mrs Roberts, who celebrated her 110th birthday in August, is the oldest living person in Scotland, a spokeswoman for the distillery said.
