Default Son sells 28 years of birthday whisky to buy first home

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-somerset-54040307

Quote:
A man whose father gave him 18-year-old whisky every year for his birthday is selling the collection to buy a house.
Matthew Robson, from Taunton, was born in 1992 and over the course of his life his father Pete has spent about 5,000 on 28 bottles of Macallan single malt.
The collection is now worth more than 40,000 and has been put up for sale.
The 28-year-old said it "probably wasn't" the best gift for a young boy but with "strict instructions never to open them" they had become a nest egg.

It doesn't say it's paying for the house, just allowing him to buy a house. Could be the downpayment.
