The picture, featuring the distinctive item of furniture, was posted by the group Humans of the Sesh on their page, with the caption, "Years in the making. Over 300 bottle caps and one love for buckie."

It has been shared nearly 700 times and received over 6,5oo likes by fans of the brand on the page.

One user joked: "As a long standing resident of Buckfast and Buckfastleigh, I give this my seal of pure boozy approval!"

While others posted that they were going to start saving their bottle caps, one commenter simply called it "a thing of beauty".

It's not the first time fans of the tonic wine have got creative with the drink, last year a butcher in Clackmannanshire created Buckfast flavoured bacon and Buckfast sausages, while Scots chilli company Chillilicious produced their own Buckfast Chilli Easter Egg.
