Whyte & Mackay has launched a bespoke whisky service which will cost £20,000

Scotch whisky company Whyte & Mackay has launched a "bespoke whisky service" for £20,000.

Purchasers will get three days with Whyte & Mackay’s master blender, Richard Paterson. He will endeavour to ascertain their likes and dislikes before creating a unique scotch based on their personality.

The idea was borne following Paterson’s recent appearance on a TV programme ‘Made in Scotland’, where he explained the whisky blending process to actor David Hayman, best known for roles alongside Pierce Brosnan, Bruce Willis and Kevin Spacey and created a whisky based on his personality and tastes.

Paterson is said to have then took the idea a step further by creating a series of one-off whiskies based on the personalities of stars including Sean Connery, Ewan McGregor, Barack Obama and Homer Simpson.

Whyte & Mackay said that as a result it received hundreds of enquiries and as a result has launched this service.

Paterson said: “It is increasingly common now for people to have their luxury goods tailor made to suit their own specific desires. By offering this service we have created a great opportunity to own a one-off bespoke whisky that may even increase in value over time.

“I will spend time getting to know their likes, dislikes and personality to create a completely one-of-a-kind whisky – and of course a dram or two will be raised as we bond. Only one bottle of each individual bottle will ever be made… it will be a whisky to treasure forever.
