KARLSTAD, Sweden, Feb. 19 (UPI) -- A Swedish hotel owner said he won't open the $28,350 bottle of rum he bought at an auction until he welcomes a guest on the level of President Barack Obama.

Georg Moller, who owns a stake in the Domle Herrgard hotel in rural Varmland County, said his pricey bottle of rum, which he bought during the weekend at a wine and spirits auction, was created by master brewer John Georges at Angostura distillers on the Caribbean island of Trinidad to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the island's independence, The Local.se reported Tuesday.

Moller said the bottle will be strictly for display until the hotel has an occasion worthy of opening it in celebration.

"If ever something really, really, really unique happens, like Obama visiting us, then we'll take a sip," Moller said.
