The largest collection of Whisky in the world

The largest collection of whisky in the world is located in its birthplace, Scotland, and specifically in Edinburgh. Named after its collector, the Diageo Claive Vidiz Collection is a dominant part of the Scotch Whisky Experience one may have near the Edinburgh Castle.

In the 1970s Claive Vidiz, a whisky enthusiast and founder member of the Brazilian Association of Whisky Collectors, started to acquire Scotch whisky of varying type, cost and rarity. He amassed almost 3,400 bottles over 35 years. This collection he later donated to Scotland. Claive Vidiz had said “We have an expression in Brazil, ‘the good son returns home,’ and in my view the collection is back with its family now.”
