How it came to be...
Claudio Bernasconi's passion to collect whisky began 22 years ago. First he learned, as a young man in India, to understand the advantages of whisky as a means of hygiene, for brushing his teeth. The idea of opening the world's largest whisky bar came later, when one of his guests spoke of a bar in Holland having 100 different whiskys. After much work and some setbacks Mr. Bernasconi succeeded, with the assistance of guests, relatives and friends to receive the first entry in the 'Guinness Book of Records' in 1996, with 1000 different bottles of whisky. In 1999 the second 'Guinness Book of Records' entry followed, with over 2,500 bottles of whisky.
The "Devil's Place" Whisky Bar is now a Mecca for whisky lovers from around the world. The selections include mainly Scottish single malt whiskeys,but also a wide selection of blended, Irish whisky and bourbon, and other grainspirits from around the world.
