A miniature bottle of Young's Gold Medal Mountain Dew, 'The Real Original as Sold Prior to 1834'. This was bottled by Edward Young & Co. Ltd., we estimate in the 1920s to 1930s.
The back label reads:
Extract from The Lancet, 10th November 1923 - The Lancet Says: - "'Mountain Dew' Scotch Whisky, Edward Young & Co. Ltd., Glasgow, Liverpool and London. This well known brand of Whisky, which claims to be 'The real original sold prior to 1834', has been analysed by us and considerations based on the analytical figures point to this Whisky being a thoroughly well-matured and carefully-made Spirit. The flavour and aroma are agreeable and characteristic of a high-grade Scotch Whisky."
Please note, there is no size or ABV stated on the label.
This lot is from a large collection of bottles, miniatures and memorabilia built up during the 1990s and 2000s by whisky expert Sukhinder Singh. He is now selling part of his collection to make room for more acquisitions.
