Whisky Bottled For Billy Connolly Up For Auction
A rare miniature of blended whisky bottled for Billy Connolly and sold at his gigs in the 1970s is going under the hammer this week.
One of the last known bottles of Nippy Sweetie is expected to fetch between £200 and £300 when it appears at McTear's rare and collectable whisky auction in Glasgow on Wednesday.
What was thought to be the last known bottling of the whisky was donated to the Art of Billy Connolly exhibition at the People's Palace in Feburary, before this latest example came to light.
A numbers of other whiskies will be sold by private collectors wishing to remain anonymous.
Laurie Black, McTear's whisky specialist, said: "We have had some unusual whiskies through our doors over the years but I don't think I have ever come across anything linked to Billy Connolly.
"It may have a comedy connection but it will be no laughing matter when the bidding starts on this very rare bottle.
"It is a fantastic item and we are expecting lots of interest from home and overseas.''
