The British Revenue & Customs people are convinced a shipment of 186 bottles of a rare cask of Highland Park Scotch whisky left Glasgow Airport as scheduled.
What they don't know is what happened to it.
The shipment, valued at $240,000US, was aboard a Delta Airlines flight bound for Los Angeles, intended to be delivered to Saybrex International, a Beverly Hills spirits company. The 32-year-old whisky is rated as one of the top single malts in the world.
“We are shocked and outraged that 31 cases of alcohol weighing some 800 pounds can just disappear while in the care of Delta and various governmental agencies,” said Ari Bussel, Saybrex International's vice president of operations.
