Saving for a house may seem like a daunting task, but a young man in England has found a unique way to do it. It turns out that his father’s idea of investing in whiskey paid off, literally.
Matthew Robson would receive a bottle of Macallan single malt as a birthday present from his father, reports the BBC. In 28 years, Robson’s father would have spent more than $ 6,000 on whiskey.

Which is probably money well spent, as Robson is said to have a collection worth $ 53,000, which he plans to turn into a down payment on his first home.
Robson told the BBC: “Every year I received it as a birthday present. I thought it was a pretty original little gift because I was a little too young to start drinking. But I had strict instructions, never, ever to open them and I tried my best and got through and they are all intact.

Robson’s dad explained, “I thought it would be nice if I bought one every year and he ends up with 18 bottles of 18 year old whiskey for his 18th birthday. It was not the only gift he received from us. It was just meant to be a one-off gift, but luckily we carried on. ”

Macallan’s value is believed to have increased over the past five to ten years, making Robson’s collection much more valuable. He works with a whiskey broker to sell it and says there is already a lot of interest from buyers in New York and Asia.
