A whisky sale in Speyside proved so popular it led to major traffic problems and a road closure.
Genesis Limited Edition bottles priced at £495 went on sale at the Macallan distillery at Craigellachie on Tuesday.
Customers gathered at the site in the early hours, eager to snap up a bottle of the spirit which celebrates the opening of the £140m distillery.
Police Scotland said a section of the B9102 had to be closed as a result for safety reasons.
The distillery said it was reviewing procedures.
A section of the B9102 has been closed at the #Macallan Distillery, Craigellachie at the junction of the A941 in the East to Braehead and Overton Cottage in the West. The public are urged to drive carefully and be patient. Updates to follow. #policescotland #keepingpeoplesafe— MorayPolice (@MorayPolice) August 14, 2018
A distillery spokesperson said: "Whilst every effort was made to communicate to our customers that there would be no access to the site prior to 09:30, a number of people hoping to secure one of these limited bottles gathered at the gates causing a local road to become blocked.
"After we contacted local police to help minimise any disruption, the road was swiftly cleared and sales got under way at the distillery when it opened.
"We are grateful to Moray Police for their assistance and in light of the issues, we are reviewing our procedures."
Police had urged motorists to "drive carefully and be patient".
Got up at 4 in the morning to travel to Macallan for a bottle of whiskey I am probably not going to get, absolutely ripping 🙄🥃— Ewen Spence (@Ewen_spence) August 14, 2018
However, many people expressed anger on social media about what had happened.
Others were delighted to have secured a bottle.
