When Valentino sold his collection nobody expected it would end up in the Netherlands. How did that come about?
Well, a few years earlier, he had met Michel Kappen, owner of Scotch Whisky International and a true whisky enthusiast, who asked Valentino to consider him, should he ever want to sell his collection. They really hit it of, and Michel promised Valentino that if he bought the collection, he would keep it intact for at least 10 years and would build a special exhibition for it.
Now this permanent exhibition of Valentino Zagatti’s whisky’s is called “The Unseen Valentino Zagatti collection” Officially opened by Mr. Zagatti himself on 9 october 2018.
