O sticla de Ballantine’s din 1941, vanduta cu 5.000 euro

by August 19, 2010 69 comments

O sticla de Ballantine’s recuperata de pe nava ‘SS Politician’, naufragiata in 1941 si care a inspirat filmul ‘Whisky Galore’, a fost vanduta miercuri la Edinburgh (Scotia) de casa de licitatii Bonhams cu 4.200 de lire (circa 5.093 euro), potrivit agentiei EFE. Sticla a depasit cu mult pretul estimat – intre 1.200 si 1.800 lire (1.450 – 2.180 euro).

In 1941, nava ‘SS Politician’ a plecat din Marea Britanie spre Jamaica, avand o incarcatura care includea piane, piese de automobile, whisky, dar nu a mai ajuns la destinatie. Vasul a naufragiat in apropiere de insula Eriskay (Scotia), dar echipajul a fost salvat.

In saptamanile urmatoare a fost recuperata si incarcatura de whisky, ceea ce a generat o disputa intre vecinii insulei, care, in conditiile rationalizarii impuse pe timp de razboi, au luat direct din nava scufundata 24.000 de sticle de whisky. Unii dintre pradatori au fost amendati, altii au ajuns dupa gratii, unele sticle au fost recuperate si toata povestea a facut sa se nasca romanul ‘Whisky Galore’.

Inspirat de romanul lui Compton McKenzie, filmul din 1949 povestea istoria scufundarii vasului ‘SS Politician’ si disputele vecinilor din zona care doreau sa obtina macar una din cele 264.000 de sticle de whisky pe care le transporta nava.

Foarte rar au aparut la licitatie sticle de whisky de pe aceasta nava, ultima data in 1987. Atunci, opt sticle recuperate au fost vandute cu 4.000 lire (circa 4.700 euro, 6.000 dolari).

    What a very nice and insightful post! It’s a fact that muscle growth is highly dependent on what one is eating, what one is lifting, one’s genetics, and what one’s goal is (and you’ve got to have a well-defined goal or else you’d be chasing after your goal forever). In addition to that, one needs to have discipline and dedication to take it to the very end (attainment of the goal that one has set). It shouldn’t be a spur of the moment kind of thing. You need to follow through, just like in anything that you want to succeed in in life. And lastly, it’s all about making everything work together—working out without the proper diet won’t cut it, taking jar after jar of supplements won’t get you bulked up if you don’t pump iron. You need to make everything work together—the right workout program, a proper diet, supplements, and a healthy lifestyle.
