Highland Queen Grand Liqueur Bottled 1930s-1940s - Macdonald & Muir 5cl
A miniature bottle of Highland Queen Grand Liqueur Scotch Whisky, bottled by Macdonald & Muir. We estimate this was bottled in the 1930s to 1940s.
The label reads: The basis of this Whisky is the matured products of two of the finest Malt Distilleries in the Scottish Highlands, Glen Moray-Glenlivet and Glenmorangie of which we are the proprietors. It is therefore unchanging. Judiciously blended with these are selections from other famous Scotch Whisky Distilleries, chosen with a view to flavour, delicacy and above all Harmony. These facts are your guarantee of Consistently High Quality.
Please note, there is no size or ABV stated on the label.
Macdonald & Muir was established in 1893 by Roderick Macdonald and Alexander Muir. Working out of Queen's Dock, Leith, the company named its flagship blend Highland Queen, as Mary Queen of Scots had landed at Leith Harbour when she returned to Scotland from France in 1561. The blend proved popular and was soon sold as far afield as Egypt, Scandinavia, South America and the Far East. After World War I, the company acquired several subsidiaries, notably Glen Moray-Glenlivet Distillery Co. and Glenmorangie Distillery Co., which the family firm owned until 2004.
This lot is from a large collection of miniatures and memorabilia built up during the 1980s and 1990s by whisky expert Sukhinder Singh. He is now selling part of his collection to make room for more acquisitions.
