Unopened WWI whisky for sale

An unopened bottle of whisky taken to the front line of the First World War is to be auctioned later this week.

The Croft Blend Fine Old Scotch was taken to France by Corporal William Mill in 1914 but was never opened.

Cpl Mill served with the 3rd Volunteer Battalion of the King's Own Scottish Borderers and the bottle was stored in a suitcase under a bed at his home. It has since been passed down through his family.

Experts believe the whisky was produced between 1889 and 1908. Bidding will start at £2,000 (€2,800).
