The Antiquary and Chivas Regal
I have just joined this site with the hope of finding out some more information about 2 bottles of Scotch Whisky that my late Father left me 10 years ago.
Back in 1976, my father made some enquiries about the 2 bottles and came up with the following information.
The large bottle of the Antiquary was supplied on a private basis to Sir Winston Churchill. Unfortunately, it appears the contents have suffered as the Whisky is slightly cloudy now maybe due to cork contamination.
The bottle of Chivas Regal shows no signs of contamination but unfortunately most of the label has gone. Apparently it was bottled just after the First World War with 25 year old Whisky! Making the contents well over 100 years old!
I do have the original documents giving the history of the bottles in my possession. I will be happy to submit pictures if anyone is interested.
Does anyone have any idea of the value of these two bottles?
Thanks for any replies.
