Malt Maniacs, made up of whisky enthusiasts from around the world, has launched a service to identify and investigate suspicious offerings on the ebay website.
The group has so far identified a steady stream of fake bottles covering distilleries including Hazelburn, Arran and Laphroaig. They are putting the name of the seller on their website as well as the results of their investigation.
Most questioned so far are either classed as ‘suspicious’ or have been confirmed as fakes.
The bottles have been put on ebay by sellers from Britain, Italy, Holland, Germany and Taiwan.
