The landlords of The George Hotel in Leadenham, Linconshire, have put their whisky collection on sale with an asking price of £250,000.

Mike and Karin Willgoose, the landlords, have collected more than 700 kinds of whiskies over the past 35 years. The most expensive bottle in their collection is a 1937 bottle of Pride of Strathspey which sells for around £500 a dram.

After running The George for more than 45 years, they have decided to put the Grade II listed pub up for sale, along with its whisky collection.

The pub’s collection is said to include Highland single malts, Scottish single malts, as well as whiskies from India, Japan, Canada and England.
