London, June 23 (IANS) British director and pop star Madonna’s husband Guy Ritchie is obsessed with finding the perfect tipple as he plans to set up his own whisky brand. Thesun.co.uk reports that Ritchie spent around 2 million pounds on The Punch Bowl pub, in London’s posh Mayfair and has been sampling some of the best booze around. He wants to find the perfect whisky and sell the most expensive bottle of whisky ever.

“Ritchie is a massive whisky fan and wants to set up his own brand. Since opening The Punch Bowl, he has tried some classics. He loves a 33-year-old malt - but reckons he can do better. He wants his to be the ultimate, exclusive whisky brand,” said a source.

“He is into his country pursuits and only drinks whisky in his boozer out of specially-made glasses. He loves the idea of coming back in his tweed and deerstalker and sipping his own brand of whisky which is the best in the world.

“He plans to stuff the current top prices with his brand. He reckons there are plenty of rich businessmen and rock stars who would pay six figures for the world’s best whisky.”
