Last year the bottle of whisky, called the Intrepid, was sold at international auction house Lyon & Turnbull in Scotland, but the buyer's name was not revealed.

The bottle, which contains the equivalent of 444 standard bottles, was certified as the largest bottle of Scotch whisky in the world by Guinness World Records in September 2021.

The U.K.'s Guardian newspaper quoted Viet as saying: "I've been spending my spare time collecting these bottles for decades.

"The history and traditions of whisky-making give each one its rarity, and that's the value I see in each bottle."

Viet began collecting rare bottles of whisky and cognac in 1996.
