Hey whisky lovers. We have had a question in our whiskyclub The Clan Maccurve : Someone had found a couple of old whisky bottles in an old basement The Label says :"veritable scotch whisky" MAC QUICK. N° 307 , a blend containing the finest highland malt whiskies, importé par Ets Margant Fréres Rue Breda Anvers, Rare Old, ...
I have searched google about it but could not find much. I hope someone here can give me more information...Thanks, Hope to find something...
Btw i have pictures of the bottle and label...

Can you post better/closer photo's of the main label, any back label and the capsule as that will help greatly

Maybe this will be better :
Thanks in advance............
I also find somewhere it could be a Gilbey's bottling ( the same place where i found the etiket (the seller wrote it as text with the pics)
It's as I thought, it's not 100% pure Scotch Whisky but what's called and "admix" made from 100% Pure Malt Scotch and a local neutral/whisky type spirit. These admixes sometimes only contain 5 or 10% malt and the very best possibly 25%. Nowhere does it state 100% Pure Scotch Whisky.
It's definitely not a Gilbey's bottling as the label would state either their name or the name of a subsiduary company and to make it certain the bottles branded by Margant.
Sorry to disappoint you but there was a time when there were a lot of this happening, mainly from the 1930's through to the late 1950's. The formation of the Scotch Whisky Association quickly brought this to a stop.
thanks for the information. I'm glad to know a little more now.
