HITLER’S CHAMPAGNE MAKES £1,688.
A bottle of champagne thought to have been taken from Hitler's wine cellar was sold at auction yesterday. See also our posting of August 8th.
The bottle of 1937 Moet et Chandon was bought by an anonymous Swedish bidder for £1,688 at Charterhouse auctioneers in Sherbourne.
It is believed to have been in Hitler's personal stock and ‘acquired’ by a British soldier from Hitler’s bunker. Hitler himself was a teetotaller.
