Found a Bottle ... Seeking Information
I moved into a house and found a bottle in a cardboard sleeve that has the words "Container Made in United Kingdom" impressed into it. The home belonged to a WWII Vet so I am thinking it is a vet "bring-back". Label says "By appointment of His Majesty The King". I don't know if they changed the label when Queen Elizabeth's reign began or not.
Label on bottle has No. AH 540476. Seal and Ribbon are still intact. I am eager to find any information about this bottle: Where was it bottled ? When ? Where was it sold ? When was it sold ? What might it be worth today ? I will attempt to attach a link from my Photobucket of the bottle, Hope it works.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
White Horse No. AH 540476
We will have your bottle of White Horse blended scotch dated for you! Some background information on White Horse: The earliest reference to a launch date for this brand was in 1890. White Horse is a blend of 40 whiskies (malt & grain) which come from across the Lowlands, Highlands and Islay. Lagavulin is the single malt which gives it its distinctive taste. Caol Ila is another. Interesting fact - After the death of the Sir Peter Mackie (founder & blender aka "Restless Pete") in 1924, sales of White Horse doubled after it became the first whisky to dispense with corks and use a screw cap.
White Horse is available in over 200 countries. :D
Thanks for your reply. I checked out the White Horse website and it was some really interesting reading. I am grateful for any efforts you make getting me any information.
Sorry the pictures are out of focus but that is the best I can get with the POC camera I have.
Kestrel - your bottle of White Horse has been dated from the early 1950s. :)
