When the rum goes down

MATT Helders' boozer bungles and pours away £40k by cracking open rare bottle of rum.

We've all spilt a few mixers in our time but that's a sickener.
Workers at The Bowery bar in Sheffield picked up the sought-after Henry Jefferson of Whitehaven bottle for just £70 last week.

Understandably they were keen to crack it open and try the spirit - but they had no idea how much it was worth. They even filmed the moment when they pulled off the wax seal from the dusty stoneware bottle, spilling the dark liquid all over the bar.

Watch the video.
