Singapore - A whisky made to mark the 60th year on the throne of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II is on sale in Singapore for a mere S$250 000 ($198 500) a bottle - and it may well find a buyer.

No doubt it's a premium sip.

Only 60 bottles of Diamond Jubilee were made by the Johnnie Walker unit of Diageo PLC from a blend of whiskies distilled in 1952. - Reuters
