CCTV footage showed what appeared to be a young man wearing a cap with a covered face entering the bar and taking the bottle.

Police said they could not confirm whether the thief broke into the bar or used a key.

The perpetrator did not steal anything else in the bar, which houses some 1,200 vodka bottles.

The bottle was on loan from a Russian businessman. Engberg said he had not insured it.
