Double Courage London - Unknown Whisky/Bottle
I just came across this site while researching a bottle of whisky I inherited from my Grandfather. It is a very unusual looking bottle, it has a wooden stand and a removable wooden top that hides the opening (it is closed with a rubber cork).
The most remarkable thing about this bottle is a little tap (working!) at the front, so you can fill your glass without opening the bottle itself.
The label is red and reads "Double Courage London - 1787 Old Whisky" with a rooster in the middle. The label is not glued on, more like "burned in", not sure how this technique is called.
Sadly the bottle is not sealed anymore (I don't think it ever was from the looks of it), in fact it is only filled to about 50%. The entire bottle holds about 1.3 Liters - it has a little measurement scale at the back. It is still filled with the original whisky though.
While researching I found out that "Courage London" is actually a brewery but there is no information whatsoever that they ever made/**** whisky. I can also not find out anything about this bottle.
Does anybody have any information about this bottle? When was it ****? What kind of whisky is within? Does it have a special value? Anything would help really.
Thanks in advance for your answers!
