Rare whisky auctioned for charity
Two decanters of rare whisky are being auctioned by a Norfolk-based magazine team to raise money for charity.

Malt whisky was collected from several distilleries by Whisky Magazine for the Make Poverty History campaign.

The spirit was created to mark the 20th anniversary of Live Aid and is at least 20 years old.

Whisky Magazine editor Dominic Roskrow said he hoped to attract bidders who would make it one of the most valuable blended malts.

'Special' whisky

"We're not expecting to break any world records because the most expensive whisky ever sold went for nearly 3,000," he said.

"But it would be nice to think we could attract the best bid of 2006.

"It is a very special whisky and will make a wonderful purchase for the serious collector."

One decanter will be auctioned at Whisky Magazine's whisky show in New York in April. The magazine is now accepting bids for the other decanter.
